Summary Box

Account name Online Cash ISA Saver Issue 8
What is the interest rate?
Annual Interest 1.05% tax-free pa/AER
Interest is earned daily and paid on the anniversary of account opening.
Monthly Interest: 1.04% tax-free pa/1.05%AER

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 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit?
  • The estimated balance after 12 months would be £1,011 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
    • the interest rate stays the same for the full 12 months.
  • 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 opened and managed online.
  • The first payment into the account can be by debit card, internal transfer from another Skipton account, or electronic payment (but not direct debit) from another UK bank or building society. You can also transfer ISA savings in from other providers via our ISA transfer service. After opening, you can also pay in by cash (in branch only, and we'll need to see some photographic ID for the first cash payment), cheque (in branch or by post) or by standing order.
  • You can deposit from £1 up to your total ISA allowance each tax year (£20,000 for 2018/2019), plus any ISA transfers, up to a maximum of £1 million.
  • No joint accounts allowed.
Can I withdraw money?
  • Yes, you can withdraw money from this account online. You don’t need to give us notice and there are no penalties.
  • For security reasons, you can’t withdraw or close within the first 14 days of us receiving your first payment. This applies to both new and existing customers.
  • This account is flexible, so you can withdraw money and put it back without affecting your ISA allowance, as long as it’s done in the same tax year and the account is still open.
Additional information
  • AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and shows what the interest 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 return on your savings.
  • 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.

If you would like to transfer your existing ISA to our Online Cash ISA Saver, please read our Transferring Your ISA page.

If you would like to transfer your Cash ISA held with Skipton to another ISA provider, you will need to complete the ISA Transfer Authority Form supplied by your new provider.

Annual subscriptions must always be transferred in full for the current tax year.

You can transfer your flexible ISA to another provider, but current and previous years' ISA allowances are treated differently. If you transfer your full balance to another ISA provider, previous years' ISA savings will no longer be flexible if you've withdrawn and not replaced before the transfer.

If you are not satisfied with our services we have an internal complaints procedure. For more information please call us on 0345 850 1722, ask in branch or visit our Complaints page.

For products and services bought online you can also refer to the Online Dispute Resolution platform (ODR) at http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/. As we're a UK building society, the ODR will still refer you to the Financial Ombudsman Service as the alternative dispute resolution body. The Financial Ombudsman Service will refer you back to our complaints process unless you've already been through this.
