Can Skipton Building Society change the interest rate?

The interest rates are fixed for the term of this account. This means we won't change the interest rates, but if your account balance increases and you become eligible for the higher interest rate, this will be applied to your account for the remainder of the fixed term.

What would the estimated balance be at the end of the fixed term?

Based on a deposit of Projected balance
£1,000 £1,051
£20,000 £21,099

The estimated balance projections assume that;

  • the account is opened with the amount stated 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.

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.
  • During the first 7 days from account opening you can:
    • deposit up to your total ISA allowance (£20,000 for 2019/2020)
    • make a request for an ISA transfer in.
    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.
  • No joint accounts allowed

Can I withdraw money?

  • You can't withdraw part of your account balance, however you can close your account at any time and withdraw the full balance or transfer it to another ISA. If you do this you'll lose 240 days' interest. This will be taken from your savings if you haven't earned enough interest on the account, and means you might get back less than you've paid in.
  • At the end of the fixed interest rate term, which is also known as 'maturity', your account will automatically transfer into a new 1 Year Online Fixed Rate Cash ISA, 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 would be if interest was paid and added each year.
  • All ISA interest is paid tax-free, which means it's exempt from income tax. Tax rules may change in future.
  • Accounts can be withdrawn from sale at any time and without notice.
