Can Virgin Money Change the interest rate?

Rates are variable. This means we may increase or decrease interest rates at any time. When we decrease interest rates we will give you at least 14 days' notice before the rate reduces. You can close or transfer your account for 30 days from the date of the notice without being charged even if you have already made two withdrawals that calendar year. Please refer to section 10 within the Savings terms and conditions.

    • Transfer to another Virgin Money account, subject to the terms and conditions of that account.

Additional Information

  • This account is a non-payment account.
  • We pay interest without deducting income tax, unless HMRC/the law requires otherwise. However, depending on your personal circumstances, you may be liable to pay income tax on the interest you have earned. Please visit www.gov.uk/apply-tax-free-interest-on-savings for further information. We do not issue Certificates of interest paid and tax deducted automatically. However, once you have requested and received a Certificate of interest paid and tax deducted we will provide further certificates in April each subsequent year that the account remains open and, for closed accounts, in the tax year the account is closed.
  • Please note, the tax treatment will depend on the individual circumstances of each customer and may change in the future.
  • Each month that there is a transaction on your account (other than an interest payment), we may email you at least once to let you know a statement is available to view online. You can view your transactions online at any time.
