If you don't need regular access to your funds, the 100 Day Notice Saver could work for you.
100 Day Notice Saver
|What is the interest rate?||
The current interest rate is 0.35% Gross/AER.
Gross means tax will not be deducted from the interest Furness Building Society pays on your savings.
AER stands for the Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added each year (excluding bonuses).
Interest is variable, calculated on a daily basis and is paid annually on 31 December. Interest can be added to your Furness Partnership 100 Day Notice Saver account, paid to another suitable Furness account or an external bank/building society account.
When interest is added to the account, this may be withdrawn without notice or penalty, providing that the withdrawal is made within 6 months of the interest being added.
The interest must be taken as one withdrawal. After the 6 month period all withdrawals are treated as withdrawal of capital and subject to the normal terms and conditions.
|Can Furness Building Society change the interest rate?||
As the interest rate is variable, we may change the rate if we reasonably believe that the change is needed. If we increase the rate we will tell you within 30 days of the change. If we reduce the rate we will tell you no less than 14 days before we make the change. For full details on how and why we will change the interest rate on your account, please refer to Section 7 of the General Savings Terms and Conditions.
|What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit?||
Based on the current rate of interest, if you deposited £1,000.00 in this account, after 12 months you would have £1,003.50.
This figure is for illustration purposes and is based on no additional deposits, withdrawals or changes in interest rate within a 12 month period.
