Summary Box - Key Product Information

What is the interest rate?

  • 1.15 gross, 1.15% AER.

  • For 12 months from date of opening the account. After 12 months from the date of opening, this account will automatically transfer to an instant access account with a rate equivalent to the Lifestyle Instant account unless instructed otherwise.

  • Interest is calculated on a daily basis and will be credited to the account on 31st December annually. Alternatively, 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 reserve the right to change it to reflect market conditions, to comply with legal or regulatory guidelines or for any reason we deem to be appropriate.

  • 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 balance be after 12 months on a £1000 deposit?

  • Based on the current rate of interest, if you deposited £1,000 in this account, after 12 months you would have £1,011.50
