When we talk tax
The terms we use are based on current understanding of UK taxation. We're always reviewing our website to make sure that anything we say about tax is up to date.
- AER. The AER (or Annual Equivalent Rate) is the equivalent rate if interest was paid and compounded once a year.
- Gross rate. This is interest we pay without deducting income tax.
We don't deduct tax from any interest we pay you. If your interest is over your Personal Savings Allowance, you'll have to pay any tax directly to HM Revenue and Customs. It'll depend on your circumstances and it might change in the future. For more information please visit, www.gov.uk2.
- EAR. The effective annual rate (EAR) is the cost of borrowing on current accounts. This takes into account the rate of interest charged, how often it’s charged and the fact that if interest is not paid, you'll pay interest on interest. The EAR can change.
* Every day, we work out the interest on your cleared credit balance. Then we pay it into your account on the last working day of each month.
Overdraft interest rates
We'll work out the interest you need to pay using the amount you're borrowing at the end of each day. We'll charge the interest the next month
|Overdraft rates||Per annum (%)||EAR3 (%)|
|Arranged Overdraft||18.29 - 34.05%||19.90 - 39.90%|
If we offer you an Arranged Overdraft, we will advise you of your debit interest rate when your application is approved. Your rate will range between the rates displayed and will be dependent on your financial circumstances
