Furness Community Accounts

Open an account today – YOU SAVE, WE GIVE.

You can open an affinity account from as little as £1 and pay in as little or as much as you like up to a maximum of £250,000.

Interest is calculated daily and the interest rate is variable and paid or added to your account annually on 31 December.

By opening an affinity account you will be helping us support our affinity partners because Furness Building Society will make a cash payment each year equal to 1% of the average balance held in their Community Accounts.  So the more you save, the more your chosen charity or organisation will benefit.

From 6 April 2016, if you’re a basic rate tax payer you’ll be able to earn up to £1,000 in savings income tax free.  Higher rate tax payers will be able to earn up to £500.  Additional rate tax payers will not receive any allowance.  This is called the Personal Savings Allowance.  This means that most people will no longer pay tax on savings interest.  Banks and building societies will top deducting tax from your account interest.
