Further information


Interest will be paid gross (without the deducation of tax).

On 6 April 2016 the government introduced a Personal Savings Allowance. It’s how much savings interest you can earn without paying tax. If you’re a basic rate tax-payer, your Personal Savings Allowance is £1,000. If you’re a higher rate tax-payer, it’s £500. If you receive interest above your allowance then you may have additional tax to pay.

This information is based on our understanding of current taxation which may change in the future.


Interest is calculated on the daily cleared credit balance of your account and is applied to the account twice yearly on 30 June and 31 December.


We will provide you with an annual statement as at the 31 December.

You may request additional statements but these may be subject to a charge as detailed in our account tariff.
