Interest is calculated daily and can be paid monthly or on maturity

If you choose to have your interest paid on maturity, interest will be calculated daily and paid on the anniversary of you opening your Bond. You can choose whether to add your interest to your Bond, transfer it to another Principality account or have it transferred into another UK bank or building society account.

If you choose to have your interest paid monthly, interest will be calculated daily and the interest paid one month after the date your Bond is opened and then monthly after that. Your interest can be paid into another Principality account. It can also be transferred into another UK bank or building society account, it is subject to a minimum of £5 being payable. Where less than £5 is due to you, the amount due will be paid at the next interest payment date where the total interest then due is more than £5.
