Can The Mansfield Building Society change the interest rate?

This is a variable rate account that tracks the Bank of England Base Rate and will move up or down in accordance with any changes to the Base Rate.

Any rate change will be applied to the account within 3 working days following a Base Rate change.

We will give customers notification if the interest rate decreases as a result of a change in Base Rate as soon as possible after the change. If the Base Rate increases we will give general notice in our branches and on our website within 30 days of the change.

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

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit?
Interest Rate
£1,000 (year 1) 1.00% with bonus £1,010.00
£1,010.00 (year 2) 0.75% without bonus £1,017.58

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 deposit and that no further deposits or withdrawals are made during the first 24 months.

The deposit amount in year 2 includes the compounded interest from year 1. The projected balance is based on the annual rate.

How do I open and manage my account?

Our savings accounts are exclusively available to United Kingdom residents. Our savings accounts are only available to non-United Kingdom residents if they are already existing members. Limited to 1 Postal Tracker (1st issue) account per customer.

A minimum opening and operating balance of £1,000 is required. Additional deposit and withdrawal transactions are subject to a minimum of £100.

The account can be added to at any time, subject to a maximum investment amount of £250,000. The total maximum investment holding in the Society is £400,000 per person.

All transactions must be conducted exclusively through the postal system. Although receipts are acceptable by cheque and standing order, for security reasons we cannot accept cash payments. Any cash deposits will be returned without any liability on our part.

Can I withdraw money?

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

Withdrawals will be by cheque made payable to the account holder(s) and posted to the registered correspondence address. Please allow us 3-4 days to process withdrawal requests.

Additional information

Interest on a sum deposited by cheque is calculated from and including the day 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.

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.
