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 Specific Product Terms and Conditions and the General Terms and Conditions for Savings Accounts before deciding to open an account.
Saver Plus (Issue 3) - Specific Product Terms and Conditions
1 – Investment Limits
The minimum initial investment amount per account is £20; The maximum investment per month per account is £1,000. Where funds are received in excess of the above limit, they will be returned either by cheque to the account address or by a faster payment to the account where the payment was received from. The minimum balance per account is £1. If the balance on an account falls below the minimum required balance, the saver will have 30 days from the date we issue a notice to the saver, to bring the balance back to the minimum. If after the notice period has lapsed the balance remains below the minimum, we may close the account without further notice. Only one account per person is allowed or two joint accounts may be opened.

You can make any number of payments (minimum £20 per month) up to an overall total of £1,000 per month per account. If you miss any payments you will forfeit the bonus.
