What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit? £1,007 (based on the assumption that no further deposits or withdrawals are made during the 12 months).
How do I open and manage my account?
  • The account can be opened for a child under 18. The account can be opened and managed on a child's behalf. If the child is over 14, they can open it on their own. If the child is under 14, the account will need to be opened on their behalf. The child will always be the named account holder. The child must be a UK resident for tax purposes to open and operate this account.
  • Open in branch, agency, or by post.
  • Minimum balance is £1, maximum balance is £25,000.
  • When the child reaches 18 years old the account will mature and the balance will be transferred to our Instant Access Account or its nearest equivalent available.
  • Manage in branch, agency, or by post.
Can I withdraw money?
  • Yes, you do not have to give notice to close your account or make a withdrawal.
  • These withdrawals need to be in the name of the child or be shown to be for the benefit of the child.
  • If the child is under 14, only the signatory can make withdrawals.
  • From the child's 14th birthday onwards, the person or people managing the account can decide to pass control of the account to the child. After this, only the child can make withdrawals.
Additional information
  • Service charges and costs may apply to your account. These are outlined in our Tariff of Charges.
  • If the total amount of interest you earn exceeds your Personal Savings Allowance then you may have to pay tax directly to HMRC. For more information visit www.gov.uk/savings-for-children.
  • In certain circumstances we may refuse an instruction to operate an account. These circumstances are outlined on page 5 of the Savings Terms and Conditions.

* Gros yw’r gyfradd llog sy’n daladwy yn ôl y contract cyn tynnu treth incwm yn unol â’r gyfradd a ddynodir gan y gyfraith.

† Ystyr AER yw Annual Equivalent Rate (Cyfradd Gyfwerth Flynyddol) ac mae’n dangos faint fyddai’r gyfradd llog pe byddai’r llog yn cael ei dalu a’i adlogi unwaith y flwyddyn.
