This is only an example for illustrative purposes and does not take into account your individual circumstances. This example assumes that the account remains open during the selected term, and that any interest earned stays in the account.
The term of the account and thus interest accrual will start on the business day that we receive your first funding. Any subsequent funding (within the first 30 days from account approval) will add to the total balance, and interest will be calculated on the minimum daily balance and applied to the account on the first day of every subsequent month.
Our accounts are available to individuals, aged 18 or over, who are ordinarily resident in the UK (i.e. England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland) and have a UK residential address. Also, you must have a personal UK bank or building society account that allows transfers to be made to and from it. Applications to open an account must be completed online.
The maximum deposit for this account is the current tax year allowance for ISAs. In addition or alternatively, you may transfer existing Cash ISAs from other providers into this account. These limits are subject to HM Revenue & Customs rules. You may make additional deposits up to the current ISA tax year allowance. You can transfer Cash ISA balances from the current tax year as well as previous tax years.
Please note: If you have already contributed to your Cash ISA in the current tax year and would like to transfer from the current tax year’s allowance, you must transfer the full amount. The maximum amount (excluding interest) that you may hold on deposit with us across all types of accounts is £500,000.
Upon account approval, you will have 30 calendar days to fund your account via new deposit and/or Cash ISA transfer before your account will expire and be closed. You have the right to cancel the account within 14 days from account approval. If you are transferring in a Cash ISA from an external provider and choose to exercise your right to cancel before the transfer is completed, the funds will stay with the original ISA provider; if you choose to exercise your right to cancel after the transfer, no interest will be paid on your funds and we will await your instructions on where to remit the funds.
