The information provided in the summary box above is a summary of the key features of the savings account and is not intended to be a substitute for reading the terms and conditions that apply to the account.
- AER. This stands for Annual Equivalent Rate. If you left a sum of money in your account all year, the AER would be the interest rate you’d get if we paid you interest during the course of the year and your subsequently higher balance then earned more interest (this is known as Compound Interest). The AER will only be higher than the gross interest rate where we pay you interest more than once a year. We quote the AER on all our accounts so that you can compare our products with those of other banks. PCF Bank pay interest annually.
- GROSS The interest rate before any payment of income tax. Please note: as of 6th April 2016 income tax will no longer be deducted by PCF Bank from interest earned on your account. Any interest earned will be paid gross. For further details on the change and to understand how any applicable tax on your savings will operate from 6th April 2016 please visit HMRC at www.gov.uk
