What is the interest rate? The interest rate paid on the account will be paid as below:
Balance Interest Gross p.a./AER*
£5,000 + Annual 0.40%
Interest is calculated on a daily basis and added to your account annually on 31st December.
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 £5,000 deposit? The following projection is provided as an example only and doesn’t take into account your individual circumstances. We have worked this out assuming a £5,000 deposit is made on account opening and no further deposits or withdrawals are made throughout the year.
Deposit Gross p.a./AER* Balance after 12 months
£5,000 0.40% £5,020

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.
