Interest is calculated daily. It can either be paid to you annually or monthly. Once you've chosen this you can't change your mind during the term.
If you choose annual interest, you'll receive it on the first business day after each anniversary. Annual interest can either be paid into this account or another account of your choice — either with us or another provider.
If you choose monthly interest, you’ll receive it on the monthly anniversary of when the account is opened. If this date doesn't fall on a business day, it will be paid on the next business day. Monthly interest will be paid to another account of your choice — either with us or another provider.
No, the interest rate is fixed. It won't change until the account matures at the end of your term.

£1,044.30 would be the balance after 1 year fixed term

To open an account you must be a UK resident aged 16 or over.
You can open an account:
There is a maximum balance of £1,000,000.
You've got 14 days from when we open your account to pay in the minimum balance of £1,000. You can do this in one lump sum or through multiple payments. If after 14 days you haven't met the minimum balance, we'll close the account and return any funds to you.
You can pay your initial deposit(s) into this account by cash, cheque or transfer from another account held with us or another provider.
No further deposits are allowed after the 14 days from account opening, but you can have more than one fixed term deposit.
You can contact us, and manage the account:
No. You can't make withdrawals from this account until maturity. You should consider whether the amount you want to deposit leaves you with adequate emergency funds.
At the end of the fixed term, your account matures and your money will be put into a Smart Saver account. 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 — such as re-investing or withdrawing.
On maturity, you can access your money in branch, over the phone, by post, through online banking and through our mobile app.
This is a limited issue product and may be withdrawn without notice at any time.
If you are or have previously been made bankrupt, you can still apply.
Interest earned from this account will count towards your Personal Savings Allowance. You may need to pay tax to HM Revenue & Customs if the total interest you earn is greater than your Personal Savings Allowance. Visit the Government’s website for more information on this.
If you’re eligible, you can apply either online, or in branch.
Approval is based on an assessment of your personal circumstances. To help protect you and ourselves against fraud, we’ll share the personal information from your application with fraud prevention agencies.
