Monthly, annual and end of term interest payment options are available – monthly and annual interest will be paid into your Barclays account (this must be in the name of one or more bond holders) or will be paid to you by cheque.

If you choose end of term interest, you’ll receive all of your interest in one tax year. This means you could reach or exceed your Personal Savings Allowance more quickly in that tax year.

Tax liability on interest applies in the tax year it is paid, which may be different to the tax year(s) in which interest has accrued.

Can Barclays change the interest rate?

No, the interest rates are fixed for the 2-year term of the bond.

It’s your responsibility to ensure that any tax due on interest payments received is paid to the appropriate tax authority.
