Your interest will be paid gross from 6 April 2016
In the 2015 budget, the government announced that from 6 April 2016 a new tax-free personal savings allowance will be introduced.
From 6 April 2016 banks and building societies will start paying interest to you 'gross'. This means we’ll stop automatically taking 20% in income tax from the interest earned on non-ISA savings and current accounts.
This will happen automatically and you don’t need to contact us or do anything. Up to and including 5 April 2016 to register for ‘gross’ interest you would have needed to follow our gross registration process, but from 6 April 2016 there’s no need to do this.
AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and shows what the interest rate would be if we paid interest and added it to your account each year.
Gross rate explained
The gross rate is the interest rate we pay where no income tax has been deducted.
Interest is calculated daily and paid annually.
