Standing Order/Electronic Payment
From 6th April 2016 personal savings account interest will be paid gross, which means that interest will be paid without tax being deducted. This will form part of your new Personal Savings Allowance:
You will only need to pay tax on any savings income you earn above your Personal Savings Allowance. The new Personal Savings Allowance applies to the total savings income you earn from all banks/building societies and not just from Monmouthshire Building Society. Visit HMRC website for more information.
Terms and Conditions:
It is important that you read the Product Terms and Conditions and the General Terms and Conditions for Savings Accounts before deciding to open an account.
Escalator Instant - Specific Terms and Conditions
1 - Investment Limits
The minimum investment is £100. The maximum investment is £500,000.
2 - Further Investment
You may add to your savings at any time, just call into your local branch or agency with your passbook and deposit. If it is more convenient you can post the deposit or save through a standing order from your bank account.
3 - Withdrawals
As this is a savings account, you are only allowed up to 150 withdrawals during each year ending 31 March. If you make more than 150 withdrawals we will give you two months' written notice following which we will close the account.
If a withdrawal reduces the balance to less than the minimum balance per account of £100 you will have 30 days from the date we issue you with a notice to bring the balance up to the minimum. If after the notice period has lapsed the balance remains below the minimum, we may close your account without further notice.
If you make a withdrawal which results in the remaining balance falling into a lower tier of interest, you will receive the interest rate applicable to that lower tier from the date of the withdrawal.
You can withdraw from your account without giving notice subject to the limits of the branch or agency you use. Details of our cash and cheque withdrawal limits are displayed in our branches and agencies, available from our website or our Head Office.
4 - Interest
The interest rate applied to the account varies according to the balance held. One interest rate is applied to the whole of the balance of the account.
Interest is variable and calculated on a daily basis on the balance in the account. Interest can be credited to the account or paid annually into a suitable bank/building society account or suitable Monmouthshire Building Society account following the close of business on 31 March each year.
5 - Terms and Conditions
These Specific Terms and Conditions apply to this account in addition to our General Terms & Conditions for Savings Accounts. Where there is any inconsistency between the General Terms & Conditions for Savings Accounts and the Specific Terms and Conditions, the Specific Terms and Conditions will apply.
