What is the interest rate?

Current rates - Effective 6 June 2017

This product pays a variable** rate of interest of:


Gross† p.a. AER*
0.50% 0.50%


Gross† p.a. AER*
0.50% 0.50%

Whether you need to pay tax is dependent on your own personal circumstances and so may be subject to change in the future.

† Interest is paid gross i.e. without tax being taken off on all our savings accounts – ISA accounts pay interest tax-free.

* AER stands for the Annual Equivalent Rate and shows you what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added each year. This will enable you to compare more easily the return you can expect from your savings over time.

** Variable rate of interest means that the interest rate payable on your account can change and can move both up and down.

Payment of interest

  • Interest is calculated daily on cleared balances
  • Annual interest is paid on 31 March. It can be paid into the RSPCA Saver account, another Yorkshire Building Society account or another building society or bank account
  • Monthly interest is paid on the last day of each month. It must be paid into another Yorkshire Building Society account or another building society or bank account.

Can Yorkshire Building Society change the interest rate?

We can make changes to the interest rate on this account for particular reasons. General Terms and Conditions (390 KB) 7 and 8 set out those reasons. Term 11 tells you how we will notify you of the changes.

What would be the estimated balance after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit?

After 12 months your balance would be £1,005.

We have worked this out assuming a £1,000 deposit is made on account opening, no further deposits or withdrawals are made throughout the 12 months, the interest earned is added to the account and no changes are made to the current interest rate.

This projection is provided for illustrative purposes only and does not take into account your individual circumstances.
