Make as many withdrawals as you like, (subject to a minimum withdrawal amount) without giving us notice, and manage your account online. Interest is paid annually or monthly - it’s your choice.

You can invest up to the current limit for the tax year, and if you have ISA balances elsewhere, you can transfer them in to keep your savings in one accessible place.

Easy Access Cash ISA - Issue 20

 

What is the interest rate?

Interest rate for balances of £1,000 or more:

Annual Interest (Variable/Tax Free) 0.92% Gross / AER 
Monthly Interest (Variable/Tax Free) 0.92% Gross / 0.92% AER

Interest rate for balances of £1-£999.99 (this rate only applies if your account falls below the minimum operating balance);

0.25% Gross/AER (Variable/Tax Free)

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 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?

The interest rate is variable and may be altered in accordance with the account Terms and Conditions and Section 17 Change To Interest Rates of our Terms and Conditions for Personal Savings Accounts.

 

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit?

A deposit of £1,000 at an annual gross rate of 0.92% (variable) would generate an estimated balance of £1,009 in one year - This is for illustrative purposes only.

(This illustrative example assumes no withdrawals, no changes to the variable 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.

Important ISA Information

View All ISA FAQs

It’s important you have all the details before you open an account. You can find more information about specific cash ISAs by clicking through on the comparison table above. If you open an account and change your mind, we offer a 14 day cooling off period where you can close it without losing interest or incurring penalties.

You can also find useful information below about our ISA accounts.

To open an account, you must be at least 18 years old, a permanent UK resident, and only subject to UK tax. Your cash ISA must be in the name of one person; joint accounts are not permitted.

You can only open and subscribe to one ISA account with Shawbrook Bank in any given tax year. You cannot open an ISA acting on behalf of an account holder with power of attorney, guardianship or intervention order.

You can only apply for a cash ISA online. Once your account is open, you can manage it using our secure messaging system or by telephone. You can find these details on our contact page.

All of our cash ISAs have the same balance limits, with a minimum deposit of £1,000 and a maximum deposit of £20,000 in any given tax year. The maximum balance for our ISAs is £250,000. If you’re transferring in an existing cash ISA, this must be valued as £250,000 or below.

After you've applied and opened your Shawbrook cash ISA, log in to your account to view the letter named ‘ISA Etransfer In' in your eDocuments. This will tell you if your transfer was completed electronically or not.

The default and most straightforward method of transferring your ISA is an electronic transfer. However, some providers are not compatible with electronic transfers, so we may need to transfer by post.

All ISA transfers, both electronic and non-electronic, will be processed within 15 working days. This process may take longer if your transfer is referred or delayed.

You can transfer your existing cash ISA account with another provider to Shawbrook, but you must first apply for a new cash ISA. We'll ask you about your current ISA as part of the application process. We will then work with your current provider to complete the transfer.

To transfer your Shawbrook ISA to another Shawbrook ISA, send us a secure message from your customer portal, and we'll take care of the rest. If you withdraw your savings from your existing cash ISA and deposit into your new Shawbrook ISA without getting in touch first, the deposit will count towards your £20,000 tax-free allowance for that tax year. We can transfer it for you without losing your allowance.

All of our cash ISAs allow withdrawals.

You won't be charged a fee if you withdraw money from your easy access cash ISA. There are no limits to the number of withdrawals you can make with an easy access cash ISA, but the account is subject to a minimum withdrawal amount of £500.

With our fixed cash ISAs, partial withdrawals or account closures made before the end of the fixed term are subject to a fee (also known as the early exit charge).

Here is an overview of our early exit charges for withdrawals made before the end of your fixed term:

  • 6 Month Fixed - subject to a loss of 90 days' interest
  • 1 Year Fixed — subject to a loss of 90 days’ interest
  • 18 Months Fixed — subject to a loss of 90 days’ interest
  • 2 Year Fixed — subject to a loss of 180 days’ interest
  • 3 Year Fixed — subject to a loss of 270 days’ interest
  • 5 Year Fixed — subject to a loss of 360 days’ interest
  • 7 Year Fixed — subject to a loss of 360 days’ interest

All Shawbrook Bank ISAs are protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS will guarantee your ISA savings up to £85,000 per eligible person.
