Withdrawals are allowed by post subject to a charge. The charge will depend on the remaining term of the account and is the equivalent of a number of days' gross interest as shown below. The interest will be taken from the account balance, and depending on when the withdrawal is made may result in you getting back less than you originally deposited. See the account conditions for specific withdrawal arrangements.
1 year or less: 90 days gross interest2 years or less: 180 days gross interest3 years or less: 270 days gross interest
The rate used to calculate the withdrawal charge will be the interest rate at the time the withdrawal is made.
If you do make a withdrawal this may affect the interest rate on your account.
Net rates are illustrative only, allowing for the deduction of income tax at 20%. If you are a higher rate tax payer, you may have a further amount to pay. If more tax is deducted than you have to pay this can be reclaimed from HMRC.
AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year. As every advertisement for a savings product, which quotes an interest rate will contain an AER you will be able to compare more easily what return you can expect from your savings over time.
Gross is the contractual rate of interest payable before the deduction of income tax at the rate specified by law.
