    0.25%

    Interest is calculated daily and credited twice a year in June and December into your Personal Sterling Savings Account.

  • Can UBL UK change the interest rate?

    Yes.

    As this Account pays a variable rate of interest, the rate can change over time. For example we might review the interest rate if the Bank of England base rate changes. We'll always let you know of any planned changes to the rate.

    Two months' notice will be given for all variable interest rate changes.

  • What would the estimated balance be at the end of 12 months based on £40,000 deposit?

    A deposit of £40,000 will generate an estimated balance of £40,095.00

    Interest in this Account is paid on incremental balances. This means that a balance of £40,000 will attract an interest of 0.20% on the first £9,999 and 0.25% on the remaining £30,001.

    This estimate is for illustrative purposes only and does not take into account individual circumstances.

    Assumptions taken for above calculations:

    • No change in the amount (no deposits, no withdrawal)
    • No change to the variable interest rates
    • Interest paid annually
  • How do I open and manage my Account

  • Additional Information

    This Account can be held in single or joint names.

    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 is your responsibility to pay any tax you may owe to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) or relevant Tax Authority.

    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.
