Term deposit account

A guaranteed rate for your savings

If you have savings that you would like to keep, you can arrange to lock them away for three months to five years with a term deposit account. There is no additional deposit or withdrawal permitted within this agreed term.

It takes the uncertainty out of saving so you can nurture your nest egg.

Main features
  • Guaranteed interest rates - up to 2.19% Gross*/2.10% AER+. This rate is available on our 60 month Term Deposit – Interest Capitalised at Maturity, if held for the full term.
  • Minimum deposit of £2,000 – Maximum deposit of £5,000,000.
  • Withdrawals or early closure are not permitted during the fixed term.
  • See below for terms available, interest rates and how this is paid to you. Our summary box is a recap of our key product information
Withdrawals are not permitted

Please note withdrawals or early closure of the term deposit are not permitted under any circumstances during the fixed term, except in the event of the death of the account holder (or one of them if joint account). See term deposit terms and conditions (PDF, opens in new window) clause 2.3 for further information, if there is anything that you don't understand please contact us for clarification.

*Gross rate interest is the interest payable without taking account of any tax payable. From 6th April 2016 we no longer deduct tax from the interest earned on your savings, following the introduction of a Personal Savings Allowance. If you earn interest over your Personal Savings Allowance you will be required to pay any tax due yourself directly to HM Revenue and Customs. If you would like to read more about your Personal Savings Allowance, please visit the Governments website www.gov.uk.

Interest is calculated on a daily basis and can be paid at maturity of the Term Deposit. On the 24, 36 and 60 month term deposits you can also select for interest to be added annually or paid out to you monthly or annually. Please note these rates are subject to change and are for illustrative purposes. If our rates have changed we will advise you of the correct rate before you open the Term Deposit.

Can Clydesdale Bank change the interest rate? No. The interest rate is fixed when you open the Term Deposit.
What would the estimated balance be at maturity, based on a range of deposits?
Term Initial deposit at account opening Balance at the end of the term
3 months £2,000 £2,002.25
6 months £2,000 £2,011.00
12 months £2,000 £2,026.00
24 months £2,000 £2,064.00

These are only examples and show the balance at maturity and do not take into account your individual circumstances or the specific manner in which interest is calculated and applied. For example, if you opt to have interest paid out to you monthly or annually the balance would remain the same.

The examples assume that:

  • no further deposits or withdrawals are made;
  • any interest earned stays in the account; and
  • there is no change to interest rates and tiers.
How do I open and manage my account?

The account can be opened in branch or online, www.cbonline.co.uk or call us on 0800 012 1111, apart from the 60 month term deposit which can only be opened in branch or via telephone. You must be aged 16 or over. Minimum opening balance is £2,000 and maximum is £5,000,000.

We will contact you 35 days before the Term Deposit matures with a rate for another Term Deposit and details of how to add funds, withdraw funds, change the term or close the account. If you are happy to invest again, you do not need to take any action the Term Deposit will be rolled over for the same term.

Can I withdraw money?

No, withdrawals or early closure of the Term Deposit are not permitted.
