The interest paid is banded, which means that the rates in the table below apply only to the portion of the balance within each band shown, not to your cash balance as a whole. Each band of your overall cash balance will receive different rates of interest as shown below, to give an overall blended rate.
Please note that our interest rates will move in line with changes in the Barclays Base Rate. However, where the applicable margin would result in a negative figure, the rate will be zero. i.e. we will pay no interest. At present we only pay interest on balances in excess of £250,000.
