Top up your savings whenever you like

Our Access accounts are really simple - you can add to them anytime so they're great for anyone that plans to save regularly.

What's the difference?

Easy Access accounts are the most flexible way to save, as they let you take money out as little or as often as you need to.

Limited Access accounts still allow you to access your money but only a set amount of times. In return for limiting your access you will usually receive a higher rate of interest. Worth considering if you know you won't need to dip into your savings very often.

Our Easy Access and Limited Access accounts pay a variable rate of interest, which means the rate could change.

Frequently asked questions

Paying interest on the tax earned depends upon the type of account you have and your Personal Savings Allowance.

For general savings, basic rate tax payers won’t pay tax on the first £1,000 of interest they earn. The allowance is £500 for higher rate tax payers, and additional rate taxpayers won’t receive an allowance. With a Cash ISA you can save tax-free up to your annual ISA allowance, currently £20,000. The tax year runs from 6 April to 5 April the following year.

Easy Access accounts are really simple – you don’t need to give notice before you make a withdrawal, and you can add money to your account at any time. You can open an Easy Access account with us online or in Store.

You can open a Limited Access account with us from as little as £1, and pay money in anytime.

You can also take money out, although the number of times you can do this is restricted. But at the start of every new calendar year, your withdrawal count is re-set to zero.

Most of our access accounts pay a variable rate of interest, which means that the interest rate on your account can go up as well as down.

We may increase your rate without telling you first so that you get the higher rate more quickly, but we'll be sure to tell you about it as soon as possible.

If you have a payment account and your rate is decreasing, we'll get in touch two months' beforehand to let you know, you can close or transfer your account anytime, without charge.

If you have a non-payment account we'll get in touch at least 14 days' beforehand to let you know, you can close or transfer your account within 30 days of us letting you know without charge.
