Business Easy Access (Issue 1): 2.76% AER Variable Rate
Business Easy Access (Issue 1)
- Interest will only accrue on balances above £1,000 and up to £500,000.
- If your balance falls below £1,000 after account opening, you will not receive interest on the balance.
- You will also receive interest on balances above £500,000, where those balances have resulted from interest being accrued to the account.
- The interest rate is variable. Interest is calculated daily and is paid every month with reference to the date of receipt of your first deposit and credited to your account.
|Account Balance||Monthly Gross||AER|
|£1,000 - £500,000||2.73%||2.76%|
Oxbury can make changes to your interest rate. Where your balance is over £100, any reductions in the interest rate will be communicated to you providing at least 14 calendar days’ notice. Where we increase your rate or we decrease it when you have a balance below £100, we’ll usually make the change immediately and notify you as soon as possible. Our Deposit Terms and Conditions set out the circumstances when we may change the interest rate, such as where our cost of funding increases as a result of changes in the Bank of England base rate.
Please note this account is NOT linked to the Bank of England base rate so fluctuations in the base rate will not automatically be reflected in the interest rate applicable to your account.
Below is an example of what the future balance might be for an account balance of £1,000 with interest paid annually. We have also shown the estimated balance for a £50,000 deposit. The projection is provided for illustrative purposes only and does not take into account individual circumstances.
