Britannia Fixed Rate Cash ISA fixed until 30 November 2017

Make the most of your ISA allowance and earn a fixed rate of interest.


  • Earn an interest rate of 0.85% tax-free AER, paid annually.
    • This rate applies to the fixed rate cash ISA launched on 03 November 2016 and is fixed until 30 November 2017.
  • Open an account with between £5,000 and £15,240, if using your 2016/2017 ISA tax allowance.
  • You can also open an account for £1 if you’re transferring your previous years’ cash ISA with Britannia or another provider.
  • No further deposits are allowed into this account after the product has been withdrawn, so if you are depositing less than your annual ISA limit this will restrict the amount you can hold in a cash ISA in this tax year.
  • You can make withdrawals before the account reaches maturity by post or in branch, but you’ll lose 180 days’ worth of interest on the amount you withdraw.
    • If you’ve earned enough interest to cover this charge, the funds in your account will not be affected.
    • However, if you withdraw from or close this account before you’ve earned enough interest, we’ll take the remainder of the charge from the funds in your account.
  • Available as a sole account only.
  • Comes with a passbook.
  • Your account will mature on 1 December 2017 and your money will be transferred to a variable rate instant access cash ISA.
    • This is a limited issue product and may be withdrawn without notice at any time.

  • You haven't made any additional deposits or withdrawals.
  • We added interest to your account at the close of business on 30 November 2017.

How do I open and manage my account?


Can I apply for this account?

To apply, you must be:

  • A UK resident (for tax purposes).
  • Aged 16 or over.
  • This account can only be opened as a sole account.

How do I apply for this account?

You can apply for this account:

  • Online.
  • Over the phone.
  • In branch by speaking to one of our advisers.

Is there a minimum and a maximum balance?

  • If using any of your 2016/2017 ISA allowance - the minimum subscription and minimum balance is £5,000.
  • If transferring in ISAs from previous tax years either with us or with another provider - minimum balance is £1.
  • The maximum ISA subscription for the current tax year is £15,240.
  • The maximum total balance you can hold in this account is £1,000,000.

How do I make deposits into this account?

You can pay into this account with either cash, cheque, or by transfer from another account held with us.

We can withdraw this product without notice at any time. No further deposits are allowed into this account after the product has been withdrawn, so if you are using any of your 2016/2017 ISA allowance, but you deposit less than your annual ISA limit, this will restrict the amount you can hold in a cash ISA in this tax year. This is because you can only pay into one cash ISA in each tax year, and you won't be able to pay any more into this cash ISA. However, you will still be able to invest in another type of ISA (e.g. a stocks and shares ISA) with another provider, up to the annual ISA limit, if you wish.

You can transfer your cash ISA to us by providing us with a completed ISA transfer authority form.

How do I contact you to discuss this account?

You can contact us by telephone or in branch to discuss this account.

Can I withdraw money?


Yes, however, withdrawals or closures before 1 December 2017 will be subject to a charge equivalent to 180 days loss of interest at the fixed rate on the amount withdrawn. The charge will be taken from interest earned but not yet paid; if you do not earn enough interest to cover this charge, the balance will be taken from the funds in your account.

You can make withdrawals through the following ways:

  • Branch withdraw cash/cheques over the counter.
  • Post you can request cheque withdrawals. Withdrawal forms for you to complete are available on request.

The account will mature on 1 December 2017 when your money will be transferred into an instant access variable rate cash ISA unless you have provided us with your maturity instructions. We'll send you a letter before your maturity, to remind you of your maturity date and to let you know what options are available to you, when considering what you'd like to do with your money.
