Please read the Key Product Information below before applying

  • What is the interest rate?
    • £1-£5,000 4.65% AER*.
    • £5,000.01+ 0.00% AER*.
    • We calculate the interest daily and pay it annually on 31st December. Interest can be added to your account or paid to your nominated account.
    • You do not earn any interest on money in the account over £5,000. You cannot have more than £100,000 in your account.
    • *AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and shows what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year. The gross rate is the interest rate payable before tax.
  • Can Bath Building Society change the interest rate?
    • The interest rate is variable, so it can go up or down at any time.
    • For more details about why we might change the rate, please read our Savings Terms & Conditions.
  • What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit?


    • This would be the balance after 12 months if £1,000 was paid in, all interest was paid back into the account, there was no change to the interest rate and no money was taken out or paid in.
    • This is just an example to help you compare accounts. It does not take into account what you may do with the money in your account
  • How do I open and manage my account?
    • You must live in the UK and be under 18 to open this account. You can open it with as little as £1.
    • If the child is under 7 then an adult must operate the account. For children over 7, the child or the adult can operate the account.
    • You can open an account on this product page or by visiting one of our Branches in Bath.
    • You can manage the accounts you hold with us through Bath Online, or by using our Mobile App. You can register for Bath Online on our website, and you can register for the Mobile App on your smartphone.
    • Account holder identification will be required. 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?
    • This is an instant access account.
    • You can withdraw by cheque from our Branches in Bath. There is no limit to how much you can withdraw. All cheques will be made payable to the child.
    • All withdrawals must be for the benefit of the child. If the reason for the withdrawal is unclear, we might ask you. If we have reason to believe the withdrawal is not for the benefit of the child, we may refuse the withdrawal.
    • You can also ask us to make a faster payment to a nominated account in the child’s name. This can be done on Bath Online, through the Mobile App, or in a Branch. You can also send us a signed letter in the post, or an email from your nominated email address.
