Key Product Information

What is the interest rate?

  • £1-£250,000 0.10% AER
  • £250,000+ 0.00% AER
  • A fixed rate for a 12 month term from the date of opening the account – which will be known as the maturity date.
  • Interest is calculated on a daily basis and will be capitalised 12 months from the date of opening.

Can Bath Building Society change the interest rate?

  • The interest rate is fixed throughout the term of the investment and cannot be varied during that period.

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

  • Based on the current rate of interest, if you deposited £1,000 in this account, after 12 months you would have £1,001.
  • This figure is only an estimate, based on there being no additional deposits, withdrawals or rate changes in that time with all interest being added to your account. This figure is for illustrative purposes only.

How do I open and manage my account?

  • Minimum opening balance £1.
  • Maximum balance £1,500,000.
  • Once placed, funds may not be added to the initial deposit.
  • Accounts are opened by completing a Trust application form, available from any Branch, Agency Office, or by contacting our Customer Support Department. Alternatively, this can be downloaded from our website.
  • Personal details are required for all Trustees as well as for named beneficiaries. Please note that all Trustees and beneficiaries must be resident for tax purposes only in the UK and be UK citizens.
  • Identification will be required for all Trustees and beneficiaries. This is usually obtained through our electronic identity verification service. However, if this proves inconclusive, here’s some popular ways to verify your id.

Can I withdraw money?

  • Withdrawals are not permitted.
  • You can however close the account and withdraw the whole balance during the fixed term, subject to a 90 day interest penalty.
  • If there is insufficient accrued or paid interest to cover any interest penalty, then the difference will be taken from the money in the account.
  • In order to close the account a payment will be made direct to the designated UK bank account, which has been set up in the same name as the Bath Building Society Account, by next day faster payment.
  • Signed requests to close your account should be posted to the Society’s Head Office, alternatively, we will accept instructions from a prenominated email address.
