Fixed Rate ISAs

Score for Skipton Building Society

Our Fixed Rate ISAs allow you to save tax-free, knowing the rate of interest won't change for the fixed term. You won't be able to continue to transfer in or pay in throughout the fixed term, but our Fixed Rate ISAs do allow payments and ISA transfers in when opening the account. If you close your account early you will incur an interest penalty so you may get back less than you paid in.
