Summary Box
  Summary Box
What is the interest rate? Interest rate without bonus 3.55% Tax-free*/AER† (Variable) each year

Interest rate with bonus (variable bonus rate of 1.05% included for the first 12 months) 4.60% Tax-free*/AER† (Variable) each year

(See the meanings of ‘Tax-free’ and ‘AER’ at the bottom of this page).

Interest is calculated each day on the money in the account and paid on 6 April every year.

The interest rate you receive will be the rate with bonus for the first 12 months. After 12 months the rate will change to the rate without bonus. We will notify you to remind you before this happens.
Can Principality change the interest rates?
  • Yes, both the interest and the bonus rates can go up or down.
  • If you have £100 or more in the account, we will give notice of any reduction in interest or bonus rates at least 14 days before the change takes effect.
  • When the interest rate changes to the interest rate without bonus, we will send you a reminder 14 days before this happens, no matter how much money you have in the account.
  • For more information on changes to interest rates, see the section Changes to interest rates in our Savings Terms and Conditions.
What would the estimated balance be after 12 months and 24 months based on a £1,000 deposit? Estimated balance after 12 months £1,046.00 (interest rate of 4.60% AER includes variable bonus rate of 1.05% tax-free for the first 12 months)

Estimated balance after 24 months £1,083.13 (only the underlying interest rate of 3.55% AER is paid for months 13 to 24)

This is based on no further money being put in or taken out of the account and no change to the interest or bonus rate.
How do I open and manage my account?
  • You must be a UK resident and satisfy the minimum age requirements to open a cash ISA (see your Branch 5 Access Bonus Cash ISA account terms).
  • You can open the account in branch or at an agency.
  • You must keep at least £1 (the minimum balance) in the account.
  • You cannot pay in more than the ISA Allowance each tax year. The ISA Allowance for the current tax year (2024/2025) is £20,000. You can only pay your ISA Allowance into one Principality cash ISA in the current tax year.
  • You can transfer unlimited amounts from ISAs from previous tax years, as these are not part of your current year's ISA allowance.
Can I withdraw money?
  • Yes, you can make five withdrawals from your ISA every tax year.
  • You can close or transfer your ISA at any time without losing interest.
  • This is a flexible ISA. This means you’ll be able to take money out of it and replace that money before the end of the same tax year, without the replacement contributing to your annual ISA allowance.

  • Service charges and costs may apply to the account. These are set out in our Tariff of Charges.
  • In certain circumstances we may refuse an instruction for using an account. These circumstances are set out in our Savings Terms and Conditions.
