Double Access Account

With our Double Access Account, you can make deposits whenever you like to help you build up your savings pot. You can also make withdrawals, giving you the reassurance that you can access your money if you need it. You’ll get the benefit of the higher interest rate if you make two or less withdrawals each year.

 

Double Access Account

With the Double Access Account, your interest rate depends on how many times you take money out in any anniversary year. You’ll get the benefit of the higher interest rate if you make two or less withdrawals in an anniversary year. If you make three or more withdrawals, the lower interest rate will apply from the day of your third withdrawal to the day before the annual anniversary of your account opening.

Withdrawals per year Gross annual interest Gross monthly interest AER*
Two or less 0.75% 0.75% 0.75%
Three or more 0.10% 0.10% 0.10%
  • Transparent – the interest rates on our Double Access Account are variable and don’t include any bonuses or introductory offers
  • Fast and easy setup - open an account, complete identity checks and move your money in minutes. You can choose to open this account in your sole name or jointly with someone else
  • Accessible - open an account with just £1,000
  • Flexible - add to your savings whenever you like
  • Unlimited withdrawals - access your money whenever you need it. You’ll get the higher rate of interest if you make two or less withdrawals each anniversary year (the 12 month period commencing on the opening date of your account and then renewing on each annual anniversary). If you make three or more withdrawals, the interest rate will drop from the day of your third withdrawal to the day before the annual anniversary of your account opening
  • Anniversary reset – your interest rate and withdrawals will automatically reset annually on the anniversary of your account opening, so if you’ve made three or more withdrawals and the interest rate has reduced, it will automatically return to the higher rate. As your withdrawals also reset, you’ll be able to make a further two withdrawals over the next anniversary year without the interest rate dropping to the lower rate
  • Cooling off period - if you change your mind within 14 calendar days of opening your account, we’ll cancel your account and return your money without penalty or notice
  • You’ll need to provide us with the sort code and account number of your nominated account. A nominated account is a UK bank or building society account that you can transfer money from and send money to. You must be named as an account holder on this account. All deposits into your Aldermore account must come from your nominated account and any withdrawals out of your Aldermore account (including interest payments) will be sent to your nominated account. Payments to us from any other account will not be accepted and will be returned
  • You can make deposits by Faster Payments, BACS, CHAPS or Standing Order from your nominated UK bank or building society account
  • Interest will be earned from the date on which we receive your money
  • Interest is paid gross (without tax taken off). Under the Personal Savings Allowance, the first £1,000 of income from non-ISA savings (e.g. any interest earned) is tax free for basic rate taxpayers, and the first £500 is tax free for higher rate taxpayers. No Personal Savings Allowance applies if you’re an additional rate tax payer. If the interest you earn is less than your Personal Savings Allowance, you don’t have to do anything. If the interest you earn is more than your Personal Savings Allowance, you’ll have to pay tax on the difference. HMRC will normally collect the tax by changing your tax code in the PAYE system. If you fill in a Self Assessment tax return you should carry on doing this as normal. For further details on how tax will be collected, refer to the HMRC guide to the Personal Savings Allowance or visit gov.uk
  • The rate of interest you receive will reduce when you make your third withdrawal in any 12 month period from the annual anniversary of your account opening. From the anniversary date the interest rate and withdrawals will be reset
  • A payment of interest away from your Double Access Account won’t be classed as a withdrawal
  • You can only open one Double Access Account, whether held in your sole name or held jointly with someone else
  • There are no fees or charges for standard account services. We may make a charge for any exceptional non-standard services which are made available to you on a discretionary basis
  • We reserve the right to withdraw this account from sale at any time
