A colleague will then respond to any queries that you may have and support you through the application and account set up process, including the Document and Mandate requirements (see above).

In common with other financial organisations we will need evidence of identification and proof of residency. Please see the You and Your Savings Account leaflet for details.

Can I cancel if I change my mind?

If you change your mind about your choice of account, you may cancel it within 14 days of the day the account is opened or the day on which you receive the terms and conditions of the account and other information on paper or electronically, whichever is later.

We will help you switch to another of our accounts or we will give you all your money back with any interest it has earned. We will ignore any notice period and any penalties relating to withdrawals or closure of the account.

Charitable Assignment

All new customers opening a savings account will be required to sign a declaration agreeing to assign any windfall conversion benefits to the Charities Aid Foundation. This assignment will apply for the first 5 years of membership. Existing members with continuous membership prior to the effective date are not affected. Our Charitable Assignment Scheme leaflet provides full details.


1. AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added to each year. AERs on the Monthly Income accounts assume interest is added to the account each month although in practice the option to have interest added in this way is not available.

2. The gross rate is the contractual rate of interest payable without tax taken off.
If separate AER/Gross rates are not quoted, both rates are identical.

^Tax free means you won’t pay UK tax on any income or capital gains your ISA makes.

Our savings accounts are exclusively available to UK Residents only.

These account details apply to personal investors only unless stated in the detailed information.
