Can Skipton Building Society change the interest rate?
  • Yes, the interest rate is variable, so it can go up or down.
  • Section 22 of our Savings Account Terms and Conditions explains why we may change the interest rate.
  • If you have at least £100 in your account we'll notify you before any drop in your interest rate.
What would the estimated balance be after 16 and 28 months based on a £1,000 deposit?
  • The estimated balance after 16 months with the bonus would be £1,019.
  • The estimated balance after a further 12 months without the bonus would be £1,029.
  • These estimates are based on the following assumptions:
    • £1,000 is paid in when the account is opened and interest starts being earned straight away.
    • No further deposits or any withdrawals are made
    • The interest is paid annually and at the end of the 16 month bonus period and added to the account
    • There is no change to the interest rates stated
  • Estimated balances are for illustrative purposes only and may be less for accounts opened by debit card.

  • Joint accounts are allowed.
Can I withdraw money?
  • Yes, you can withdraw money or close the account online. You don’t need to give us notice and there are no penalties.
  • For security reasons, you can’t withdraw money or close the account within 14 days of us receiving your first payment. This applies to both new and existing customers.
Additional information
  • AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and shows what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added each year.
