Notice savings accounts

Notice savings accounts are ideal for earning an attractive rate of interest while having flexibility. Unlike fixed rate bonds, your money is not locked away for a set period. With a notice account, you just need to let us know in advance when you want to access your savings.

Notice accounts can be a good way to save for a future goal where you can plan ahead nearer to the time of purchase, such as buying a home or paying for a wedding.

At Shawbrook, we offer a choice of two notice periods with our 45 day notice account and 120 day notice account. Use our table below to compare and find the best notice savings account for you and learn more about the benefits.

About our notice accounts

We’ve put together some of the most important things to know about our notice savings accounts below. For information relating to a specific account, please click through on the comparison table above.

A notice savings account is a type of savings account that has no fixed term but requires a notice period before you can withdraw your money. They offer more flexibility than a fixed term account and typically pay more interest than an easy access account. They work best if you don’t want to lock your funds away for a long time but will know in advance when you need access to your savings.

The notice period will differ depending on the account you have chosen. At Shawbrook, we offer a 45 day notice account and a 120 day notice account. Our accounts mean that once someone has let us know they would like to withdraw their money, they will receive it in 45 or 120 days.

Although notice accounts are more flexible than a fixed rate bond, the notice period means they are not suitable for people who want to access their funds at any time. For those who want even more flexibility, an easy access account could be right for you.

Whether a notice savings account is the best option will depend on your circumstances and savings goals. But some of the benefits include:

  • Unlike a fixed term account (such as a 1 year fixed rate bond, for example), you don’t have to make new investment decisions at the end of the term. The money will remain in your account and keep gaining interest until you decide to withdraw, so you can leave it in the notice savings account for as long as you want
  • After the initial deposit, there is no minimum deposit amount so you can keep topping it up as and when you like
  • You’ll typically get a higher rate of interest than you would with an easy access savings account
  • Having a notice period can help you make more informed decisions and avoid the temptation of dipping into savings

At Shawbrook, we currently offer two different notice savings accounts — a 45 day notice account and a 120 day notice account. You can find out more about these and the rates available in our comparison table above.

The interest rate is variable and may alter per your account’s terms and conditions. You can find out more in ‘Section 17: Change To Interest Rates’ of our Terms & Conditions for Personal Savings Accounts.
