Additional information This is a limited issue and the Society reserves the right to withdraw this product without notice at any time. Interest is paid gross without tax deducted.

Your tax treatment will depend on your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future.

* The gross rate is the rate before deducting tax at the rate applicable to savings income. The annual equivalent rate (AER) is a notional rate which illustrates what the gross interest rate would be if the interest was paid and added to the account annually.

*AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and shows what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added to the capital balance each year.

**Gross P.A. is the rate of interest paid without the deduction of tax.
