At Leeds Building Society we offer great value through a comprehensive range of financial services, competitive interest rates and a real commitment to getting things right.
That’s because we remain an independent building society, a mutual, driven by our customers.
If you’re looking for a flexible way to manage your money and organise your household bills, the Premier Current Account works perfectly. And with Standing Orders, Direct Debits and the option of an overdraft, it includes everything you need to keep your finances under control.
You can choose either a passbook to access your money or a cheque book. Overdrafts and cheque books are subject to status.

Your choice of either a passbook or cheque book.
Direct Debits, Standing Orders and overdraft facilities are available (subject to status).
You can take the pain out of paying bills by paying them by Direct Debit or Standing Order. It’s easy to transfer money from one account to another and cash withdrawals can be made at any Leeds Building Society branch.
Your salary, pension or other regular income can be paid directly into the account and cash and cheques can be paid in at any of our branches.
The Premier Current Account also offers an overdraft facility for the times you need to go overdrawn. We request that you operate your account for 6 months, after which you can request an overdraft at any time and once authorised, it will be in place whenever you need it. The overdraft facility is subject to status.
You won’t have to pay a penny! There are no monthly or annual charges to run the account. No matter how many transactions you make by cash, cheque, BACS, Standing Order or Direct Debit, you will not be charged for the day to day operation of your account provided your account remains in credit.
§ Gross means the rate of interest payable before the deduction of income tax at the rate specified by law. † AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added each year.
