For notice accounts, if you are requesting a withdrawal, you must specify if you require immediate access to the funds. If you do require immediate access, the withdrawal will be subject to a loss of interest, details of which are set out in the product literature.
For fixed term accounts, if you are requesting a withdrawal during the fixed term, you will incur a loss of interest as stated in the product literature.
Any withdrawal request received on a non-working day (i.e. a weekend and any national holiday in England) or after 3.30pm will be processed the following working day.
