Account Name

Fixed Online Saver
Interest rates (AERs) Fixed interest rate. View our current rates
Tax Status Interest will be paid net of income tax (currently 20%) unless you register your account with us to receive gross interest. If you are not a basic rate tax payer see our important information section.
Conditions for bonus payment There's no bonus available on this account.
Withdrawal arrangements

No withdrawals allowed. Early closure permitted. If you close your account early, you lose an amount equivalent to:

1 year term - 90 days’ gross interest
2 year term - 180 days’ gross interest
3 year term - 270 days’ gross interest
5 year term - 365 days’ gross interest

This amount will be taken from the amount you put into your Fixed Online Saver when you opened it, and you may therefore get back less than you first deposited.
