Summary box

This summary box contains the specific terms and conditions for this account and, where applicable, supersedes our Savings general terms and conditions.

Account name

One year regular savings account - issue 3

What is the interest rate?

Rates effective 24 January 2017:

Annual Interest gross p.a.*

3.00% (£25+)

AER*

3.00% (£25+)

*Gross p.a. is the rate of interest paid without the deduction of tax per annum. Please note that the automatic deduction of tax on savings interest ceased with effect from 6 April 2016. AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year. As every advertisement for a savings product will contain an AER you will be able to compare more easily what return you can expect from your savings over time.

Interest is calculated daily and will be added to the account at the end of the term.

Can Kent Reliance change the interest rate?

The interest rate on this account is variable and can change at any time. Up to date information on our interest rates can be found on our interest rates page, in branch or by calling our head office.

If your account balance is £100 or over, when we make a rate reduction we will personally notify you of the change at least 14 days in advance of the change taking effect.

Please refer to Condition 7 of our Savings Terms and Conditions for full details on interest rate changes.
