Do you want a competitive fixed rate of tax-free interest? Can you put away a lump sum until the end of 31 May 2022?
We’ve designed this ISA for your 2018/2019 annual ISA allowance and/or some or all of your previous years’ ISA savings.
(Fixed until 31.05.2022)
The interest rate is fixed until 31 May 2022.
We calculate the interest daily and pay it annually, at the end of 31 May.
Interest can be added to the account or paid away.
The interest rate is fixed.
No matter what happens to interest rates generally, we won’t change the rate for this account until the account matures at the end of 31 May 2022.
This would be your balance after 40 months if £1,000 was paid in on 1 February 2019, interest is paid back into the account and no other money was taken out or paid in.
This illustration is just an example to help you compare accounts. It does not take into account any individual circumstances.
How to open and manage
How to put money into your account
This is a limited issue ISA account and you have a limited time to pay in.
We must receive the money you would like to invest in the account and any other payments in (including any ISA transfer instructions) within 14 calendar days of us accepting your application, or while the account is still open to new investors, whichever is longer.
The minimum balance is £1.
You can’t take out part of the money
What happens when the ISA’s fixed period ends (matures)
Fixed Rate ISA (78) is not a flexible ISA
After you’ve opened the account, we won’t contact you to let you know when it closes to new investors. To find out if it’s still available, please contact us.
^Interest on ISAs is paid tax-free, that is without tax deducted. ISAs are a savings scheme initiated by the Government and are subject to change by them. For example the favourable tax treatment may not be maintained.
*AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added each year.
For full details, please see the Specific Terms for Fixed Rate ISA (78) and our General Investment Terms and Conditions.
How to keep track of your account
We’ll issue you with a statement within a month of any money leaving your account. But don’t worry, we’ll never send you more than one statement a month.
You can receive your statements by post. Or, if you use Online Services, you can go paperless and we’ll send you reminders to view your statements.
If you change your mind
You have a 14 day cancellation period after you make your first payment into a Fixed Rate ISA (78). If you wish, you may change your mind and close the account within 14 days without notice, charge or loss of interest.
To do this, ask at any branch, call us on 0800 121 8899 or write to us at Oakfield House, PO Box 600, Binley Business Park, Coventry CV3 9YR.
If you do close the account within the 14 days, it will be treated as if this ISA was never opened, so you’d still be able to pay some/all of your annual ISA allowance into another cash ISA in the same tax year.
Not sure what to do?
We’re keen to help you make the right choice – have a chat with our specialists at any branch or by calling 0800 121 8899.
If you’re not happy with our service
Please let us know. We take care to deal with problems quickly, thoroughly and fairly. If you’re still not satisfied when we’ve finished our complaints procedure, you can take your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service. For more information about the Ombudsman Service, financial-ombudsman.org.uk.
We believe in being open and honest. We want you to make an informed choice. That’s why we've built this tool to help you compare our accounts with other providers.
This tool uses the latest data from moneyfacts.co.uk, an independent comparison service. Moneyfacts aim to include at least 95% of providers of UK-based personal savings accounts.
What’s missing? Our tool omits any accounts with special conditions for opening (for example, you have to already hold an account with the provider).
Remember: there’s more to a savings account than just the interest rate. You can compare access terms, how to pay in and other criteria – then make your own mind up.
