  • Can Buckinghamshire Building Society change the interest rate?

    Yes, interest rates are variable and we can change them at any time. Any changes will be made in accordance with Section 7 of our General Terms and Conditions which sets out when we can vary the interest rate and how and when we will notify you.
  • What would be the estimated balance after 12 months based on a deposit of £1,000?

    The estimated balance after 12 months based on an initial deposit of £1,000 would be £1,022.50.

    This estimation assumes that £1,000 is deposited on 1 January with no deposit or withdrawal transactions made and interest subsequently paid gross at 31 December.

  • Additional Information

    • Gross Rate is the contractual rate of interest payable before the deduction of income tax at the rate specified by law. We will pay interest at the gross rate. It is your responsibility to declare any interest you earn to HMRC. The Society also has a legal obligation to supply HMRC with particulars of interest paid.
    • Basic rate taxpayers can earn up to £1,000 interest on savings tax free. Higher rate taxpayers can earn up to £500 interest on savings tax free. Additional rate taxpayers will pay tax on all savings interest earned.
    • AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year.
    • We have no current plans to withdraw this product although it can be withdrawn without notice.

You should read this information carefully in conjunction with our General Savings Terms and Conditions to ensure you understand them.

Upon opening this account you will automatically become a member and be bound by the Society’s Rules, a copy of which is available on request.

The Society operates a 14 day cancellation period, so if you change your mind about opening an account you will receive back all your original capital plus any interest accrued.

As the child is the beneficial owner of the money in the account, we reserve the right to question if withdrawals are for the child's benefit.

Financial Services Compensation Scheme

You must read the Information Sheet which gives all the details of the FSCS and how you are covered.

The FSCS is the UK's statutory fund of last resort for customers of financial services firms. This means that the FSCS can pay compensation to consumers if a financial services firm is unable, or likely to be unable, to pay claims against it. The FSCS is an independent body, set up under the Financial Services & Markets Act 2000 (FSMA).
