*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.

Where interest is payable, it is calculated daily and can be credited to the account or transferred to your nominated account. Monthly interest is calculated on the basis that each month last 30.416 days (365 days divided by 12 months)

Where payable, annual interest is paid on 5 April each year and monthly interest is paid on the last working day of each month.

Additional information

We pay interest without deducting income tax, unless HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC)/the law requires otherwise. However, depending on your personal circumstances, you may be liable to pay income tax on the interest you have earned. The interest earned on this account becomes taxable in the tax year the bond matures unless you have the interest paid away to your nominated account, in which case the interest becomes taxable in the same tax year it is paid away.
