Can Bath Building Society change the interest rate?

  • 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 General Terms and Conditions leaflet, under Section 7.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1000 deposit?

  • Based on the current rate of interest, if you deposited £1000 in this account, after 12 months you would have £1001.00

  • 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.
