Our account conditions (PDF, 210KB) explain when and how we do this. For example, we might review the interest rate if the Bank of England base rate changes.

  • For example, if you deposit £1,000 when you open the account and make no withdrawals, the balance after 12 months will be £1041.98.

    If you deposit £1,000 when you open the account and withdraw £10 on the first day of the month for the first 4 months of the term, the balance after 12 months will be £979.83.

    • The interest rate stays the same.

    You’ll get a higher rate of interest if you make 3 or less withdrawals in the twelve months from opening. If you make 4 or more withdrawals, you’ll get a lower interest rate from the month you make the fourth withdrawal until the end of the account year.

    Closing your account counts as a withdrawal.

    If making an online transfer, it can only be made to an existing Halifax current account.

    After 12 months the account will change to an Instant Saver. Before this happens, we'll contact you to explain your options and next steps.

  • Gross rate means we won’t deduct tax from the interest we pay on money in your account. You will need to pay any tax you may owe to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

    AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate. Whenever you see an advert for a savings account which shows an interest rate, you will see the AER. This means you can use the AER to compare accounts. It shows what the interest rate would be if your interest was paid and compounded once each year.
