What if I change my mind?
From the date of account opening you have 14 days to notify us (in writing) if you are not happy with your choice of account.
Please write to:
105 Albion Street,
Within that period we will, if instructed by you, refund your investment with interest from account opening, or subject to eligibility, transfer the investment to another account of your choice without any penalty for early withdrawal.
What about income tax?
Interest will be paid gross, without the deduction of income tax. Payment of gross interest does not mean that interest you receive is exempt from tax. For help about tax on your interest please seek independant advice.
What if I have a complaint?
We aim to provide a high quality service to customers at all times. Unfortunately mistakes do occur, but when this happens we shall do our best to resolve problems or misunderstandings which arise.
