Interest Rate Definitions

  1. AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added to the account once each year.
  2. Tax-free – Interest will be paid exempt of UK income tax.

This account has a variable rate of interest and is subject to change; this means we may increase or decrease interest rates at any time. If we reduce the interest rate and you have at least £100 in your account, we will give you 14 days notification prior to the change and you will have a period of 30 days from the date of the notification to switch or close your account.

Please refer to section 7 of the Savings Accounts General Terms and Conditions for further information on how and why we may change the interest rate.

Based on the current rate of interest, if you opened this account and deposited £1,000, after 12 months you would have £1006.00

Operation in accordance with ISA Regulations

The operation of the account is subject to the applicable provisions of the ISA Regulations. The Society will notify you if, by reason of any failure to satisfy the ISA Regulations, the ISA has, or will, become void.

The Society will satisfy itself that any person to whom it delegates any of its functions or responsibilities under the terms agreed with you is competent to carry out those functions and responsibilities.

If you are found to have breached the ISA rules governing subscription limits or the number of Cash ISAs which may be opened in any one year, or your application is incorrect, your Cash ISA will cease to be exempt from tax and any interest earned in that year will be subject to tax.

Please note that the ISA investments will be, and must remain in, the beneficial ownership of the investor and must not be used as security for a loan.
