*Gross rate - Gross rate interest is the interest payable without taking account of any tax payable. From 6th April 2016 we will no longer deduct tax from the interest earned on your savings, following the introduction of a Personal Savings Allowance. If you earn interest over your Personal Savings Allowance you will be required to pay any tax due yourself directly to HM Revenue and Customs. If you would like to read more about your Personal Savings Allowance, please visit the Government website www.gov.uk.

***AER. stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year.

****Tax free means interest payable is exempt from income tax.

The Effective Annual Rate (EAR) is the cost of borrowing on current accounts. This takes into account the rate of interest charged, how often it’s charged and the fact that if interest is not paid, you'll pay interest on interest. The EAR can change.
