A notice account for when you don't need immediate access to your funds

Our Business Notice Accounts offer a better interest rate than our Business 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 Business Notice Account. Provided the required notice is given, withdrawals are free. Charges apply for withdrawals without the required notice being provided.

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 deposits
  • Achieving a higher rate of interest and wanting to add additional funds to the Account

Not Good If

  • You may need access to your deposits before the end of the notice period
  • You wish to make payments from this Account
  • You do not wish to be charged for accessing your deposits before the end of the notice period

More Information

  • What is the interest rate?

    It is a variable interest rate, with the rate as at 23.09.19 shown below:-

     

    Term Interest Rate (AER/Gross)
    35 Day Notice 1.00%
    90 Day Notice 1.00%

     

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

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

    A deposit of £1,000 at an annual Gross rate of 1.00% would generate an estimated balance of £1,010.00

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

    Assumptions taken for above calculations;

    • No change in the amount (no deposits, no withdrawals)
    • No change to the variable interest rate
    • Interest payment twice a year
  • How do I open and manage the Account?

    Eligibility:

    You must be;

    • Aged 18 or over

    • Minimum/Maximum Balance

  • Can I withdraw money?

    Withdrawals can be made by giving the required notice.

    If you wish to withdraw money from your 35 Day Business Notice Account without giving us the required notice, or before the expiry of the notice period, an Early Withdrawal Charge equivalent to 35 days’ gross interest will be applicable to the amount being withdrawn.

    If you wish to withdraw money from your 90 Day Business Notice Account without giving us the required notice, or before the expiry of the notice period, an Early Withdrawal Charge equivalent to 90 days’ gross interest will be applicable to the amount being withdrawn.

    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 with single or joint signatory.

    There is a 14 day cooling off period for the 35 Day and 90 Day Business Notice Account. 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’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.
