Summary Box

Account name 2 Year Fixed Rate E-Bond Issue 72
What is the interest rate?
Annual Interest 1.61% gross pa/AER
Interest is earned daily and paid on the anniversary of account opening.
Monthly Interest: 1.60% gross pa/1.61% AER
Interest is earned daily and each month's interest is paid on the same date your account was opened or the last day of the month if shorter.
Can Skipton Building Society change the interest rate? The interest rate is fixed for the term of this account.
What would the estimated balance be at the end of the fixed term based on a £1,000 deposit?
  • The estimated balance after the fixed term would be £1,032 assuming that:
    • the account is opened with £1,000 and interest starts being earned straight away
    • no further deposits or any withdrawals are made
    • the interest is paid annually and added to the account.
  • Estimated balances are for illustrative purposes only and may be less for accounts opened by debit card or cheque.
How do I open and manage my account?
  • This account is available to UK residents aged 16 or over and can only be opened and managed online.
  • The first payment into the account can be made by debit card, electronic payment (but not direct debit) from another UK bank or building society account or transfer from another Skipton account. After that, you can also pay in by cash (in branch only, and we'll need to see some photographic ID for the first cash payment) or cheque (in branch or by post). You can pay in for seven days after the date of your account opening. After this your account may be closed to further deposits at any time and without notice.
  • You can save from £500 up to £1 million per account.
  • Joint accounts are allowed.
Can I withdraw money?
  • No, you can't withdraw money until the end of the fixed interest rate term, which is also known as 'maturity'.
  • At maturity your account will automatically transfer into a new 1 Year Fixed Rate E-Bond, unless you tell us otherwise, and you'll have 21 days to change your mind.
  • We'll contact you before maturity and you can find out more about the maturity process in condition 8 of the further terms and conditions.
Additional information
  • AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and shows what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added each year. The AER allows you to compare the interest rates on savings accounts. The higher the AER, the better the return on your savings.
  • We pay all savings interest gross, which means no tax is deducted. It's your responsibility to pay any tax due, based on your individual circumstances. Tax rules may change in the future.
  • Accounts can be withdrawn from sale at any time and without notice.
