Summary box for the Instant Saver 

What is the interest rate?

Earn 0.01% gross/AER variable interest on balances of £1 or more.

There will be no change to your interest frequency.

Can Halifax change the interest rate?

Yes. As this account pays a variable rate of interest it can change over time. We’ll always let you know of any planned changes to the rate. Our account conditions (PDF) explain when and how we do this. For example, we might review the interest rate if the Bank of England base rate changes.
 

What might the future balance be?

For example, if your balance is £1,000.00 when you open the account, after 12 months your balance will be £1,000.10.

This assumes:

  • You make the deposit on the day you open the account.
  • You don’t pay more money into the account.
  • You don’t withdraw any money or interest.
  • The interest rate stays the same.
  • Your interest is paid each year.

Additional information

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.

Not the account for you?
