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  • Accounts can be withdrawn from sale at any time and without notice.
