Business notice accounts

A business savings account is an excellent way to save any extra cash in your company and earn interest. Most interest-bearing business accounts offer a fairly unimpressive return. And you might not want to tie up your money in a fixed term bond for an extended period.

Shawbrook's business notice account is a great compromise. We'll give you a competitive rate if you let us know when you want your money ahead of time. So, when your business requires it, you can withdraw funds with no penalties, and once the notice period is over, you’ll receive your requested money.

We currently offer two business notice accounts. You can choose between our 45 day and 100 day accounts. It's easy to open an account with us, and you can deposit anywhere between £5,000 and £2,000,000.

Best business account rates

If your business has a cash surplus, it is worth investing it into an account with better interest rates. In placing spare cash into a notice savings account, you could earn a competitive interest rate on the money you deposit.

Interest is calculated daily and will be paid on the anniversary of the date we received your first deposit — either monthly or annually, depending on the product you select.

The best business account rates can depend on several factors, including the length of the notice period.

Here at Shawbrook, you can choose between two different notice accounts and our business account rates differ based on the notice period you select. Explore our accounts and their AERs (Annual Equivalent Rate) below.

AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates the interest rate if it was paid and compounded each 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.
