This is a variable rate savings account and we have the right to vary the interest rate at any time.

For more information on changing interest rates, please see Section 7 of our General Account Terms and Conditions.

This projection is provided for illustrative purposes only and does not take into account your individual circumstances. This assumes that the account is opened on 1 January with a £1,000 cash deposit and that no further deposits or withdrawals are made during the first 12 months. The projected balance is based on the annual rate.

How do I open and manage my account?

Available to savers resident in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire or South Yorkshire, or existing members who have a minimum of 1 year continuous membership.

Simply complete an application form and send it to us or take it to your local branch.

A minimum of £1 must be deposited in order to open the account.

The account can be added to as long as the Easy Access Community Saver account remains available and your total savings with us do not exceed £400,000 regardless of whether the account is held in single or joint names.

You can manage your account in branch or through the post.

Can I withdraw money?

Withdrawals, closure or transfers can be made without notice or loss of interest.

Additional information

A simple variable rate savings account for your everyday needs.

In addition to the interest paid on the account, a donation equivalent of 0.10% of the average total balances invested in all Community Saver accounts will be donated by the Society to our Charitable Trust each year.

We calculate interest on a sum deposited in cash from and including the day we receive it. Interest on a sum deposited by cheque is calculated from and including the day after we receive it. We calculate interest on a sum withdrawn up to and including the day before withdrawal.

Interest is paid gross without tax deducted.

Interest can be added to your account, credited to another account with the Society, or sent direct to your bank account.

Charitable Donation

On a quarterly basis the donation amount will be donated to The Mansfield Building Society Charitable Trust.  The donation amount will be calculated quarterly by taking the balance invested into all Mansfield Building Society Community Saver accounts at the end of each of the three months, adding the balance together, dividing by 3 to calculate the average balance, multiplying this amount by 0.10% and dividing the total by 4 as it’s a quarterly donation.  

For example, if the balance at the end of January was £250,000, February £275,000 and March £300,000 then the average balance in quarter 1 would be £275,000; the Society will then donate £68.75.

Any estimate of the likely amount to be donated by the Society to The Mansfield Building Society Charitable Trust in the course of the next year will depend on the amount invested in all Community Saver accounts opened as part of the Community Saver account scheme. Based on an estimated average investment total in all Community Saver accounts of £10 million in a year, it is estimated that a total donation of £10,000 would be made in that year.

The percentage donation will be fixed until 30th April 2020.  On or after 30th April 2020 the percentage donation will be reviewed and is not guaranteed.

Definitions

1. AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year. AERs on the Monthly Income account assume interest is added to the account each month although in practice the option to have interest added in this way is not available.

2. The gross rate is the contractual rate of interest payable without tax taken off.

If separate AER/Gross rates are not quoted, both rates are identical.

^Tax free means exempt from UK income and capital gains tax in the hands of the investor.

These account details apply to personal investors only unless stated in the detailed information.
