Can Kingdom Bank change the interest rate?

Yes. 

As this account pays a variable rate of interest it can change over time. We’ll always let you know of any planned changes to the rate. Our account conditions explain when and how we do this. For example we might review the interest rate if the Bank of England base rate changes.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months?

If you deposit £1000.00 when you open the account, the balance after 12 months will be £1010.00.

This assumes:

  • You don’t withdraw any money and interest is paid into this account.
  • The interest rate stays the same.
  • You don’t add any more money.

Can I withdraw money?

All withdrawals are subject to a 32 days notice period.

If you need the funds without serving the notice period, you may arrange this but there will be charges in accordance with the Terms and Conditions.

No charges or penalties (except those referred to in out terms and conditions where we permit early withdrawal at our discretion and any charges on transfer before maturity or notice period served) apply to these accounts.

All withdrawals must be made to an account in the same name. We will not permit a withdrawal to a third party by any method.

Any money you move to an account that isn't an ISA will lose its tax-free status. Tax treatment depends on your individual circumstances and may change in future.

Additional information

Savings terms explained

Tax free means you will not pay income tax on your interest.

AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate. Whenever you see an advert for a savings account which shows an interest rate, you will see the AER. This means you can use the AER to compare accounts. It shows what the interest rate would be if your interest was paid and compounded once each year.
