Additional information

Interest will be paid gross.

Gross rate interest is the interest payable without taking account of any tax payable.

AER (Annual Equivalent Rate). The Annual Equivalent Rate illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year.

We work out how much interest to pay you at the end of each day. This is based on the money in your account. If your balance is £1,000 or less, we’ll pay interest on the whole balance. If it’s higher, we’ll pay interest on the first £1,000 of your balance. We’ll add any interest to your account on the last working day of the month.
