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
  2. Gross – The gross rate of interest is the interest rate payable before any income tax is deducted (if you do pay 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 deposited £1,000 in this account, after 12 months you would have £1005.00.

This projection is for illustration purposes only and does not take into account your individual circumstances. The projection is based on no additional deposits, withdrawals or changes in the interest rate within the 12 month period.
