The relevant reduction in profit when a deposit is withdrawn before maturity and/or required Notice is set out in the table below:
|Term of Deposit||Reduction in profit (calculated till date of withdrawal)|
|90 Day Notice Islamic Deposit Accounts||50% reduction in total profit calculated|

b) Any surviving Joint Account holders may request that the investment be continued until the date of maturity.

Profit will be paid using the Gross Rate and tax will not be deducted where your profit is exempt.
Gross rate means we won’t deduct tax from the profit we pay on money in your account. It’s your responsibility to pay any tax you may owe to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).
AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the profit rate would be if profit was paid and compounded once each year. As every advertisement for a savings product which quotes profit rate will include an AER, it makes it easier for you to compare what return you can expect from your savings over time.
