More information

Mortgage offset:

No

Interest rate:

Rates are variable. Interest is calculated based on a 360-day year, with the exception of the South African rand, where interest is calculated on a 365-day year. Interest is calculated daily on the cleared credit balance on the account and will be applied on the standard quarterly settlement dates in March, June, September and December.

Gross:

The rate of interest payable without tax taken off.

Tax:

Interest is paid gross. If you’re a UK taxpayer, you may have to pay tax on interest earned in excess of your Personal Savings Allowance.

For information and guidance please refer to the HMRC website.

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

AER:

Annual Equivalent Rate. This illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year.
