Fixed rate accounts

If you’re looking to invest a lump sum, a fixed rate account could be the perfect way to plan for your future with peace of mind that you will know exactly how much interest your savings will earn.

See our fixed rate accounts

Fixed rate accounts offer you a higher rate of interest in return for locking your money away for a period of time, usually between one and five years. Typically, the longer you choose the higher the rate will be. Once you’ve chosen your rate, this will remain the same during the fixed period meaning you will know exactly how much interest you’ll earn by the end of your term.

Why choose a fixed rate account?

  • Know exactly how much you'll earn
  • Choose monthly or annual interest
  • Tax-free within your Personal Savings Allowance or as a cash ISA
  • Higher interest with longer term

What else should I know?

Making deposits

Once you’ve opened an account, you will need to make your opening deposit into the account. This is a lump sum one off amount and as the account is fixed you will not be able to add further deposits during the rest of the term.


You will only be able to withdraw your money from your account when the fixed rate term comes to an end, known as your maturity.

Nominated bank account

When you open your account, you will be asked to enter the details of your nominated bank account. This is the account that you will need to make your opening deposit from. And, should you choose to withdraw your funds when the fixed term comes to an end, we’ll return your money to the same nominated bank account.

Account management

You can open and manage our Fixed Rate accounts online or by post.

Your options at maturity

When your fixed rate term finishes we will notify you about your options in advance. You then have the option to choose to re-invest your money or withdraw it, by sending it back to your nominated bank account.

Personal savings allowance

Launched in 2016, the personal savings allowance allows you to earn interest on your savings tax-free. There are limits depending on your tax banding. Currently £1,000 for lower rate tax payers, £500 for higher rate but if you earn more than £150,000 the personal savings allowance doesn’t apply.

ISA allowance

Our range of fixed rate cash ISAs allow you to make use of your ISA allowance or transfer any previous ISAs you may already hold. Any deposit you make into a cash ISA, will earn interest free of tax. This is in addition to your Personal Savings Allowance. However, with our fixed rate cash ISAs, you have the option to access your money the whole term of your account, subject to an interest penalty. Any new ISA subscriptions are restricted each year by the annual ISA allowance, but we also accept transfers of previous year ISAs.
