  • What is the interest rate?

    £1 + 0.75% Gross PA/AER
    If the balance falls below £1, a variable rate of 0.10% Gross / AER will be paid.

    Interest is calculated daily and paid annually at 31 December into this account.

  • 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 £1000?

    The estimated balance after 12 months based on an initial deposit of £1,000 would be £1,007.50. 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.

    This projection is provided for illustrative purposes only and does not take into account your individual circumstances.

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).
