30 Days' Notice - Adult Savings Account

What is the interest rate?

**Gross PA % *AER %*(Gross)
1.00 1.01

Variable rate of interest paid half yearly.

Interest is calculated on a daily basis and is added to your account half yearly on the 30th June and 31st December. Alternatively it can be paid directly to your bank account or another Harpenden Building Society account.

*AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once a year.

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

Can Harpenden Building Society change the interest rate?

We have the right to vary the rate of interest. When the interest rates reduce, and the change is material, we will personally tell you about it before we make the change. Please refer to condition 7 of our General Terms and Conditions for Retail Savings Accounts which sets out the reasons for which we may change the rate and the procedure for doing so.

You will find copies of these terms and conditions in all of our branches or you can download them from our website: harpendenbs.co.uk/savings/savers-terms-and-conditions.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit?


We have worked this out assuming a £1,000 deposit is made on account opening and no further deposits or withdrawals are made throughout the year.
