Savings accounts and cash ISAs

Important information for Halifax savings customers.

We are making some changes to our savings conditions. These changes cover:

  • The Government ending its Help to Buy: ISA scheme from 30th November. Existing Help to Buy: ISA customers can continue to save. Savers with other banks and building societies can still transfer their Help to Buy: ISAs to Halifax.
  • New processes for our Regular Saver accounts.

At the same time we’re making minor grammar changes, and including some details in the booklet that we’ve already told affected customers about.

Our updated conditions will apply from 1st December.

Choose your ideal account

We have a range of savings accounts, whether you need easy access to your money, peace of mind of a fixed rate of return, tax free or even one for your child.
