These changes will be made from 1 October 2021 and you can read full details here.

We understand that you may have questions about what these changes will mean for you and have provided further information here, including details of how you can get in touch.

Interest is paid ‘gross’. This means that we do not deduct tax from interest we pay. Depending on your personal circumstances, you may have to pay tax on your interest. If you are a sole trader or a partnership (where all the partners are individuals), this will depend on your total taxable income, interest that you receive and your Personal Savings Allowance. There are more details on our Savings interest rate page.

We set the credit interest rate which is variable. We will give you two months' written notice of any reductions to the credit interest rate. If we increase the credit interest rate on your account we will make the change immediately. Interest will be paid on all cleared credit balances. Credit interest is paid quarterly, on the last business day of each quarter.

AER stands for 'annual equivalent rate' and shows what the yearly rate of interest would be, after considering how often interest is added to the account, and assuming no withdrawals are made.
