*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 can be credited to the account or transferred to your nominated account.

Annual interest is paid on maturity. Monthly interest is paid on the last working day of each month. The final interest payment will be made on the maturity date.

The interest rate on this account is fixed and cannot be changed throughout the account term. Up to date information on our interest rates can be found on our Interest Rates page, in branch or by calling our Head Office, the telephone number can be found on our Contact Us page.
