What is the interest rate?



Rates effective from 07 February 2024.

Interest is variable, calculated on a daily basis and paid annually on 31 March.

Can Marsden Building Society change the interest rate?

The interest rate is variable so we can increase or decrease the rate at any time.

If the interest rate on your account falls, and the balance in your account is £100 or more, we will personally notify you of the change. All our interest rates are available in our branches and on our website.

For more details about why we may change the rate, and when we’ll let you know about a change, please refer to our General Retail Savings Account Terms and Conditions.

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

If you saved £1,000 the estimated balance after 12 months would be £1,033.50.

This example assumes that the account is opened with the amount stated on 01 April, no withdrawals or further deposits are made throughout the 12 months, the interest earned is added to the account, and no changes are made to the current interest rate. It is provided for illustrative purposes only and does not take into account your individual circumstances.

How do I open and manage my account?

This account is available to UK residents and can be opened and operated online only. To apply online, visit our ‘eSavings’ platform and follow the steps on screen. 

Joint accounts are allowed.

The minimum balance to open the account is £100. The overall maximum holding by any one person in respect of all savings accounts with the Society is £250,000. This includes money held in a joint account.

Additional deposits can be made at any time up to the maximum allowed.

Payments into the account can be by debit card (up to £1,000), electronic payment (but not direct debit) or standing order. The first payment into the account must be within 5 working days of account opening, otherwise the account will be closed.

Additional information

*Interest will be paid gross. This means all the interest we pay you will be without tax deducted. If the total amount of interest you receive exceeds any Personal Savings Allowance to which you’re entitled, you may have to pay tax at the applicable rate. This would need to be paid directly to HM Revenue & Customs. For more information, please visit gov.uk and search for ‘Personal Savings Allowance’.

†AER stands for the Annual Equivalent Rate and shows you what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added each year.
