Our Personal Notice Accounts offer a better interest rate than our Personal Sterling Savings Account for those savers able to offer the required notice in order to access their savings.

Start saving from just £1 and make unlimited deposits up to a total of £1,000,000. UBL UK offers a 35 Day or 90 Day Personal Notice Account and withdrawals are free provided the required notice is given. Charges will apply for withdrawals without the required notice being provided. Start saving from just £1 and make unlimited deposits up to a total of £1,000,000.

Good For:

  • Saving when you will not need immediate access to your money before the end of the notice period
  • Achieving a higher rate of interest in return for providing notice to access your money
  • Achieving a higher rate of interest and wanting to add additional funds to the Account

Not Good If:

  • You may need access to your savings before the end of the notice period
  • You wish to make payments from the Account
  • You do not wish to be charged for accessing your money before the end of the notice period
  • What is the interest rate?

    It is a variable interest rate, with the rate as at 15.10.2019 shown below:

    ACCOUNT TYPE

    INTEREST RATE (AER)

    35 Day Notice

    1.00%

    90 Day Notice

    1.00%

    Interest is calculated daily and credited twice a year in June and December in your Notice 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.

    A two months' notice period will be given for all variable interest rate changes.

  • What would the estimated balance be at the end of 12 months based on £1,000 deposit?

    Below is an example of what the future balance may be after interest has been paid.

    PERSONAL NOTICE ACCOUNTS

    ACCOUNT TYPE

    EARLY WITHDRAWAL CHARGE

    35 Day Notice

    35 days’ gross interest

    90 Day Notice

    90 days’ gross interest

    If the interest earned on your Notice Account is insufficient then the Early Withdrawal Charge will be deducted from your deposit and accrued interest, which may take your balance below the minimum interest earning balance.

    The Early Withdrawal Charge will not be applied in the event of the death of an Account Holder (or one of them in case of a Joint Account).

  • Additional Information

    This account can be held in single or joint names.

    There is a 14 day cooling off period for all Personal Notice Accounts. If you decide to cancel within the 14 days we will not deduct Early Withdrawal Charges, but you will not be entitled to interest for the number of days your deposit has been with us.

    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 any applicable 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.
