Interest is calculated daily. We pay slightly higher rates of interest if you select your interest to be paid at Maturity.
For bonds selected to pay Maturity Interest we will credit the interest on the maturity of your bond. Interest is paid gross.
For bonds selected to pay Annual Interest we will credit the interest on each anniversary of your bond. Interest is paid gross.
As the interest rate is fixed, the interest rate cannot be changed over the term of the bond.
A deposit of £1,000 at the annual Gross rates for the different terms is shown below:

Early withdrawal is at our discretion and we cannot guarantee that you will always be able to access your money although we will always try our best for you. This is because the loans and bonds we invest your money in are long-term investments and it may not always possible to sell them immediately to free up funds to redeem your bond. In the event that we do redeem your bond the you will also incur a cost. The ultimate annual interest rate you earn will be reduced to reflect the amount of time you actually ended up investing for and the rate that was applicable at the time you invested (for example, if you invested for a five year term but withdrew after a year, our system works out what you would have got had you invested for a year at the time of purchase and this is what you receive).
In addition, there is an Early Redemption charge of 2.50%.
