This product pays a fixed rate of interest of:


Gross† p.a. AER*

Whether you need to pay tax is dependent on your own personal circumstances and so may be subject to change in the future.

† Interest is paid gross i.e. without tax being taken off on all our savings accounts – ISA accounts pay interest tax-free.

* AER stands for the Annual Equivalent Rate and shows you what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added each year. This will enable you to compare more easily the return you can expect from your savings over time.

** Fixed rate of interest means that the interest rate payable on your account will remain the same from the time you open your account until the end of the fixed rate period.

Payment of interest

  • Interest is calculated daily on cleared balances
  • Annual interest is paid on 29 February 2020. It can be paid into the Fixed Rate eBond account, another Chelsea Building Society account or another building society or bank account.
  • Monthly interest is paid on the last day of each month. It must be paid into another Chelsea Building Society account or another building society or bank account.

Can Chelsea Building Society change the interest rate?

No, the interest rate is fixed until 29 February 2020.

What would the estimated balance be at the end of the full term based on a £1,000 deposit?

At the end of the fixed term on 29 February 2020 your balance would be £1,017.36.

We have worked this out assuming a £1,000 deposit is made on account opening on the first day the product goes on sale, interest earned is added to the account and no further deposits or withdrawals are made throughout the fixed term.
