Monthly, annual and end of term interest payment options are available.

Monthly and annual interest will be paid into your nominated Barclays account (this must be in the name of one or more Flexible Bond holders) or will be paid to you by cheque.

As monthly and annual interest is paid into your nominated account, the interest does not compound in your bond.

End of term interest is paid to your bond at maturity.

For terms of more than one year, the actual interest that you receive at the end of the term will be higher as it includes compounding from year to year.

Tax liability on interest applies in the tax year it is paid, which may be different to the tax year(s) in which it is accrued. So, if you choose end-of-term interest, you’ll receive all of your interest in one tax year and you could reach or exceed your Personal Savings Allowance more quickly in that tax year.

Can Barclays change the interest rate?

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