Britannia Maturity Fixed Rate Bond applications

Summary

Learn more about how to complete your application, add another account holder and why we ask about citizenship.

To reinvest, you need to be:

  • 16 or over.
  • A UK resident.
  • An existing Britannia Fixed Rate Bond customer who is looking to reinvest their funds after maturity.

How to add another account holder

On your maturity form, there’s an opportunity to add another account holder to your bond.

Both you and the other account holder will need to fill in your personal details and sign the document.

Please keep in mind that if the other account holder isn’t a UK/EU national, they may also need to prove their right to reside in the UK.

You can learn more about which documents we accept as proof of ID in our terms and conditions.

What happens after I’ve posted my maturity form?

Once we’ve received your maturities form, it can take up to 14 days before we confirm your application.

If you’re reinvesting your bond, however, you won’t lose any interest if we receive your form before the maturity date.

Why we ask about citizenship and tax residence

In your application we ask you to tell us whether you are a US citizen and the country or countries where you are tax resident. All UK banks have to do this following the introduction of international rules on the automatic exchange of information for tax purposes

It’s important to fill in these fields correctly, otherwise we may need to contact you to complete your application.

Do I need to attach my passbook when returning my maturity form?

No, you don’t need to attach your passbook.

Please take your passbook with you when visiting us in branch.

How do I know you’ve received my maturity form?

We can send you a text message once we’ve received your maturity form.

To enable this feature, please tick the box on your maturity form and insert your phone number.
