What is the interest rate? 0.90% Gross* p.a. / AER† (Variable)

The interest rate tracks the Bank of England Bank Rate (Base Rate) currently 0.75%, plus 0.15%, for three years after opening. To find out the current Base Rate, visit bankofengland.co.uk.

There is no maximum interest rate for this account, and the rate will never fall below 0.15%.

After three years the account will no longer track the Base Rate and your balance will be transferred to our Easy Saver Account or its nearest equivalent. We'll write to you to remind you before this happens.

Interest is calculated on your daily balance and paid annually on the anniversary of account opening.
Can Principality change the interest rate? Yes, this is a variable rate account that tracks the Bank of England Base Rate and will move up or down in accordance with this, if it changes, until the third anniversary of the account opening.

Any rate change will be applied to the account at the start of the next calendar month following a Base Rate change.

Customers will be given personal notification if the interest rate decreases as a result of a change in Base Rate as soon as possible after the change. If the Base Rate increases we will give general notice within three business days of the change in our branches and on our website.
What would the estimated balance be after 36 months based on a £1,000 deposit? £1,027.24 (based on the assumption that no further deposits or withdrawals are made during the 36 months). This estimate is calculated on the current Base Rate of 0.75% it does not take into account any fluctuations that may take place during the three year term.
How do I open and manage my account?
  • You must be aged 16 or over. You must be a UK resident for tax purposes to open and operate this account.
  • Open your account in branch, agency or post by printing and returning the application form on our website.
  • Minimum balance is £500, maximum balance is £2,000,000. The minimum balance must be maintained to operate the account.
  • You can continue to make deposits into your account provided you do not exceed the maximum balance of £2,000,000.
  • You have five business days from account opening date in which to make your initial deposit. If you have not made your initial deposit in this time, your account will be closed.
  • Manage your account in branch, agency, post or online via secure message (subject to Your Account eligibility criteria, available when you click ‘Register Now’ at www.principality.co.uk/register).
Can I withdraw money? Yes, you can make two withdrawals per calendar year, subject to the minimum balance. Closure is permitted and will count as a withdrawal so if you have already made two withdrawals in the current calendar year you will not be able to close the account until either the next calendar year begins or the account matures on the third anniversary
