Account type

 Freedom deposit

What is the interest rate?

  • Where the balance on the account is £100 or more, the interest will be 2.5% Gross/AER fixed.
  • AER stands for annual equivalent rate, and shows what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded each year.
  • Interest is calculated daily and paid into your account either monthly or annually, depending on the option on your account.

Can Savings UK Ltd change the interest rate?

  • No, the interest rate is fixed for the duration of the term.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £100,000 deposit?

  • Based on the interest rate of 2.5%, an account with a £100,000 deposit will have a balance of £102,500 after a year.
  • This projection is for illustrative purposes only and does not take into account individual circumstances.
  • This projection is based on receiving £100,000 deposit on the first day of the due invoice, which remains invested for 12 months.
