How do I take money out?

  • You can have no notice access to your money.
  • There are no limits on the amount of withdrawals.
  • The minimum amount you can withdraw is £1 (or less if closing).

You can take money out by:

  • Electronic transfer – If possible, we will make your payment by FPS meaning that we will debit your account the same day or any future date for which you authorised the payment. The payment should reach your nominated account within a few hours but no later than the end of the next business day.
  • If you request a CHAPS withdrawal and we receive your authority and full instructions before 1pm on a business day, the money should be credited to your nominated bank or building society account the same day. A charge will be made for this type of transfer, please refer to the Charges Leaflet for details. The minimum you can withdraw by CHAPS is £250 up to the account balance. CHAPS transfers can only be processed by our Main Office.
  • Cheque – You can take out up to £500,000 by cheque in a day from any Virgin Money Store**. Larger amounts by cheque can be posted to you direct from our Main Office.
  • Transfer to another Virgin Money account (subject to the terms and conditions of that account).
  • Cash – You can take out up to £2,000 in cash in a day from any Virgin Money Store**.

You will be required to provide suitable personal identification when making withdrawals at a Store Link opens in a new window ** and you must remember to present your passbook each time you make a withdrawal.

When is the interest paid, and where is it paid to?

  • This account pays a variable rate of interest.
  • You can choose when and how to have your interest paid. Interest can be paid monthly to supplement your income or yearly as a lump sum – it’s entirely up to you.
  • Annual interest is paid on 25 June and available on the next business day. Monthly interest is paid at a slightly lower rate than annual interest, is paid on the last day of each month and is available on the next business day.
  • Paid net (after tax) or, subject to the required certification, gross (before tax). If you wish to register for gross interest, please complete a R85 form PDF opens in a new window (PDF, 44KB).
  • If the balance in your account falls below £1, the minimum balance, our basic savings rate of 0.10% Gross2 P.A applies.

Interest can be;

  • Added to your account.
  • Transferred into any Virgin Money account (except Cash ISAs or, if your existing terms and conditions do not allow).
  • Paid into an account with another bank or building society.
