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:

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?

The gross rate(s) of interest shown will be payable net of the appropriate rate of income tax (which may be reclaimed by nontaxpayers) or, subject to the required certification, gross.

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. Should you need to refer a matter of complaint to us, details of the procedure are available from your local branch or our customer helpline.
