Interest will be paid using the Gross Rate and tax will not be deducted where your interest is exempt.

Gross rate means we won't deduct tax from the interest 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 interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year. As every advertisement for a savings product which quotes an interest rate will include an AER, it makes it easier for you to compare what return you can expect from your savings over time.

Definitions:

To help you in your product selection, you may find the following definitions useful:

  • Gross interest: the contractual rate of interest payable before the deduction of income tax at the rate specified by law.
  • AER (Annual Equivalent Rate): the AER illustrates what the true rate of interest would be if interest was paid and compounded each year. Please note that the actual interest rate, based on the interest payment frequency you chose, will be different than the AER advertised. If interest is paid more frequently to your account, the actual rate applied would be lower.
