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. 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 Account General Terms and Conditions for further information on this.

Based on the current rate of interest, if you deposited £1,000 in this account, after 12 months your estimated balance would be £1,029.00.

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.

This is a withdrawn product. New applications are not being accepted.

Only 1 Foxley Fund Account can be held per child.

Account holders under the age of 7 years must have their account operated for them by an adult aged over 18 who will be called the ‘Young Savers Account Operator’. At the age of 7 years, an account holder can operate the account.

Additional deposits can be made subject to the annual maximum investment of £9,000 per qualifying year (1st January to 31st December).

Transfer of funds from existing Chorley Building Society accounts are not permitted.

This product can be opened and managed in branch, by post, and via Chorley Online where you are able to view transactions, check your balance and check interest rates. Please refer to the Society’s Savings Accounts General Terms and Conditions.
