Additional information

Tax status: Interest is paid gross from 6 April 2016 due to the introduction of the Personal Savings Allowance (PSA). You will need to declare any income from savings interest earned over your PSA through a self-assessment tax return to HM Revenue & Customs

This is a strictly limited issue and may be withdrawn at any time without prior notice.

1AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the annual rate would be if interest was compounded.
