*AER stands for annual equivalent rate. It shows what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year. Variable means we change these rates and charges from time to time, or introduce new charges. If this means you’ll pay more, we’ll let you know beforehand.

Find out what you need to open an account


You can deposit money whenever you want and you can make as many withdrawals as you want, as long as you provide 35, 60 or 95 days' notice. You don’t need to close the account even if you withdraw all the money. It stays open so you can starting putting money into it again whenever you like.

Notice periods & withdrawals

Partial and full withdrawals are permitted, but any withdrawal can only occur after the required number of days’ notice. Please note, if you think you’ll need access to your money without giving notice this product may not be appropriate for you and you may wish to consider our Business Instant Access Deposit Account instead.

Since 6 April 2016 interest on savings has been paid without tax being deducted. For more information, please contact the Business Team on 0345 08 08 508.
