A choice of interest payment periods of either monthly*, quarterly or annually is available for the Direct Transfer Account 2.
AER – Stands for the Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year. (As every advertisement for a savings product which quotes an interest rate will contain an AER, you will be able to compare more easily what return you can expect from your savings over time).
Gross – Gross rate means that we will not deduct tax automatically from interest payments. The account holder is responsible for paying any tax due to HMRC.
The AER advertised is based on interest paid gross and capitalised to the account once a year – please note that other interest payment periods are available and the actual interest rate on your account will be lower if you have interest applied more frequently, but when compounded will equal the AER.
