Key Product Information

What is the interest rate?

  • 4.00% gross, 4.00% AER.
  • Interest is calculated on a daily basis and will be credited to the account on the 31st December annually.
  • Interest can be transferred into another Bath Building Society account or paid by faster payment into a nominated account if preferred.

Can Bath Building Society change the interest rate?

  • The interest rate is variable which means we may change it to respond to changes in the Bank of England base rate or changes in law, to meet relevant regulatory requirements, or to respond to changes to codes of practice or changes in our costs.
  • We will give you 30 days’ notice in writing before any reduction to the rate is applied.
  • Full details of the reasons why we may change your interest rate can be found in the Terms and Conditions brochure.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on depositing £10 every month?

  • In this example, if you saved £10 per month in the 16-25 Regular Saver account, the estimated balance after 12 months would be £122.61.
  • This figure assumes an initial deposit of £10 was made on 1st January 2021 and all 11 subsequent deposits are made on the first day of each month. It also assumes no additional deposits, withdrawals or rate changes in that time with all interest being added to you account. This figure is for illustrative purposes only.
