1 Year Fixed Rate Business, Trust and Charity Bond Issue 14

What is the interest rate?

Where the balance on the account is £10,000 or more, the interest rate will be 1.10% Gross/AER fixed.

  • Interest is paid annually; we will pay the interest into your account on the anniversary of you opening it.
  • Interest is always paid as a gross amount.
Can Cambridge & Counties Bank change the interest rate?

The interest rate is fixed for the length of the term.

Once the bond has matured, there are circumstances in which Cambridge & Counties Bank has the right to change the interest rate and these are explained in the Terms & Conditions, section 15.

What would the estimate balance be after 12 months based on a £10,000 deposit?

£10,110 after 12 months.

This figure is based on a £10,000 deposit, and all conditions of the account being met.

How do I open and manage my account?

Open

  • You’ll need to make a minimum deposit of £10,000, the most you can deposit is £3m (£5m per entity overall with Cambridge & Counties Bank). This is a condition of the account.
  • The  deposit must come from your nominated business current account by cheque or transfer.
  • It’s easy to apply using our application form which is available on our website, or call us on 0344 225 3939 and we can send you one.
  • We accept applications from UK based Sole Traders, Partnerships, Limited Companies, Limited Liability Partnerships, Charities, Societies, Clubs, Associations, Trusts and Parish Councils.
  • All account holders must be aged 18 or over, resident in the UK and only liable to pay tax in the UK.

Manage

Can I withdraw money?

You cannot make withdrawals before the end of the term of the bond.

We will typically contact you 14 days before maturity to remind you and let you know the options available to you. At the end of the term, if we don’t receive any instructions from you, your account will become an Easy Access account and the rate will reduce to a nominal, variable interest rate. You can then transfer funds to your nominated business current account.

We will make this transfer using faster payment, which means the funds will be in your account the following working day.

Of course, you can opt to leave your funds in place or transfer to another of our accounts.

Additional Information
  • Changed your mind? If you are a micro-enterprise or charity, with an annual income of less than £1m, you can close your account within the first 14 days of the account opening date, without paying any penalty.
  •  Statements are issued annually on the anniversary of the account opening.
  •  There are no transaction charges on your account, however we may charge for additional services such as requesting a copy of a statement (currently £5 per statement).
