Interest rates

The interest rates on all our accounts are variable. This means the rate can change and go up or down.

Bank of England rate change

The Chase saver rate is tied to the Bank of England base rate. This means 5 business days after the Bank of England base rate changes, the AER of our saver will also change to 1.15% below theirs. For example, if the new Bank of England rate is 4.25%, we’ll subtract 1.15% and the AER of our saver will change to 3.10%. You can find the Bank of England rate here (Opens in new window)

None of our other interest rates are tied to the Bank of England base rate, and we'll let you know if there are any changes in the future.

Interest rates explained

AER is the rate of interest you earn from us on any balance above £0. It's short for Annual Equivalent Rate and shows the interest rate for a year, taking into account any interest payments made to you during the year. The AER enables you to easily compare the interest rates on accounts from different banks and building societies where interest may be calculated or paid at different frequencies.

Gross interest is the rate used to calculate your monthly interest payments where no tax is deducted. UK bank interest is paid gross. The interest you receive is subject to taxation.

How we pay interest

We calculate your interest daily and pay it monthly. With a 1% AER interest rate that means, if you put in £1,000 on your first day, you'd earn £10 in interest over the year. If nothing changes (including the interest rate), you'd have £1,010 at the end of the year. Please note, a 30 day month will generate less interest than a 31 day month.

Interest and tax

Interest you earn with a bank is taxable in the UK. We don't deduct tax from your interest before it's paid to you, as the amount of tax you pay depends on how much you earn.

You'll need to tell HMRC yourself if you need to pay tax on your interest. If you're a UK taxpayer, you might get the UK Personal Savings Allowance, which basically lets you earn some interest before tax. How much your tax-free amount is depends on your tax rate. If you pay the basic rate of income tax, you can earn £1,000 in interest before tax. Higher rate taxpayers have £500 before tax and additional rate taxpayers get no UK Personal Savings Allowance.

If you are also tax resident in another country, interest income may be taxable in that other country.
