1 Year Fixed Rate Business Savings Bond Issue 14


What is the interest rate?

Interest rate for balances of £5,000 or more:

Annual Interest (Fixed) 0.75% Gross / AER
Monthly Interest (Fixed) 0.75% Gross / 0.75% AER

Interest is calculated daily. Interest will be paid on the anniversary of the date we receive your first deposit – this will be monthly or annually depending on the product you choose. If you take out a 1 Year Bond and opt for interest to be paid annually, your interest will be credited on closure of the account. If the anniversary falls on a weekend or a bank holiday your interest will be credited on the next working day.


Can Shawbrook Bank change the interest rate?

As the interest rate is fixed, the interest rate cannot be changed over the term of the account.


What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £5,000 deposit?

A deposit of £5,000 at an annual Gross rate of 0.75% (fixed) would generate an estimated balance of £5,038 in one year - This is for illustrative purposes only.

(This illustrative example assumes no withdrawals, no changes to the fixed interest rate over the period and interest is paid and compounded annually on a cleared deposit. Interest is rounded to the nearest pound. The illustrative example does not take into account the individual circumstances of a customer.)

Terms Explained

AER. This stands for Annual Equivalent Rate. If you left a sum of money in your account all year, the AER would be the interest rate you’d get if we paid you interest during the course of the year and your subsequently higher balance then earned more interest (this is known as Compound Interest). The AER will only be higher than the gross interest rate where we pay you interest more than once a year. We quote the AER on all of our accounts so that you can compare our products with those of other banks.

GROSS is the interest rate without the deduction of income tax. This is the interest rate paid on your account.

Fixed Rate Business Savings Bonds

Get a great rate when you lock up your money.

If you have spare cash in your business, it makes sense to put it to work earning interest. And if you can commit to placing your money on deposit for a fixed term, you could get a great rate from Shawbrook.

A fixed rate bond could be ideal if you’re putting money aside for a specific period of time - for example, if you know you will have financial commitments to meet in a year’s time or more. You won’t be able to access the funds before the end of the term, but in return you’ll get an attractive rate.
