FAQs / Savings questions

Fixed rate accounts

What is a fixed rate account?

Fixed rate accounts offer a higher rate of interest for locking your money in for longer. Your rate will remain the same for the entire fixed term, so you will know exactly how much interest you’ll earn by the end of your term.

To learn more about fixed rate accounts see our fixed rate account guide.


How do I withdraw from my fixed rate account?

You cannot make early withdrawals from your fixed rate account. So, it’s important you’re sure you won’t need access to the money before you deposit.


What is the personal savings allowance?

Unlike ISAs, fixed rate accounts are subject to tax. However, the government introduced the Personal Savings Allowing in 2016 which allows you to earn a certain amount of tax-free interest on your savings dependant on your tax bracket.
