    Interest is earned daily and paid on the anniversary of account opening.
  • Monthly Interest Rate
    Interest is earned daily and each month's interest is paid on the same date your account was opened or the last day of the month if shorter.

    For balances eligible for higher rates of interest, the higher rate applies to the total balance.

Can Skipton Building Society change the interest rate?

  • Yes, the interest rate is variable, so it can go up or down.
  • Section 22 of our Savings Account Terms and Conditions explains why we may change the interest rate.
  • If you have at least £100 in your account we'll notify you before we reduce your interest rate.
  • The interest rate you receive will depend on your balance. If your account balance increases or decreases, your interest rate may change as a result and the relevant rate will apply to your account going forward.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a range of deposits?

Based on a deposit of Projected balance
£1,000 £1,010

  • the account is opened with the amount stated
  • interest starts being earned straight away
  • no further deposits or any withdrawals are made

Can I withdraw money?

If you would like to transfer your existing ISA to our Online Cash ISA Saver, please read our Transferring Your ISA page.

If you would like to transfer your Cash ISA held with Skipton to another ISA provider, you will need to complete the ISA Transfer Authority Form supplied by your new provider.

Annual subscriptions must always be transferred in full for the current tax year.

You can transfer your flexible ISA to another ISA, but current and previous years' ISA allowances are treated differently. If you transfer your full balance to another ISA, previous years' ISA savings will no longer be flexible if you've withdrawn and not replaced before the transfer.

If you are not satisfied with our services we have an internal complaints procedure. For more information please call us on 0345 850 1722, ask in branch or visit our Complaints page.

As we're a UK building society, the ODR will still refer you to the Financial Ombudsman Service as the alternative dispute resolution body. The Financial Ombudsman Service will refer you back to our complaints process unless you've already been through this.
