Gross Rate is the contractual annual rate of interest payable before the deduction of income tax, at the rate specified by law (the ‘specified rate’).

AER (Annual Equivalent Rate) is a notional rate which illustrates the contractual interest rate (excluding any conditional bonus payable) as if paid and compounded on an annual basis.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT COMPENSATION ARRANGEMENTS

We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if a bank is unable to meet its financial obligations. Most depositors – including most individuals and small businesses – are covered by the scheme.

In respect of deposits, an eligible depositor is entitled to claim up to £85,000. For joint accounts each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share so, for a joint account held by two eligible depositors, the maximum amount that could be claimed would be £85,000 each (making a total of £170,000). The £85,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all the eligible depositor’s accounts with the bank, including their share of any joint account, and not to each separate account.

For further information about the scheme (including the amounts covered and eligibility to claim) please ask at your local branch, refer to the FSCS website www.fscs.org.uk or call 020 7741 4100 or 0800 678 1100††

Barclays Bank PLC may also accept deposits under the following trading names: Barclays, Barclays Bank, Barclaycard, Barclays Business, Barclays Capital,Barclays Commercial, Barclays Corporate, Barclays Financial Planning, Barclays International Private Banking, Barclays Local Business, Barclays Premier, Barclays Private Bank, Barclays Wealth, Standard Life Cash Savings and Standard Life Cash Savings & Mortgages. Deposits accepted from an eligible depositor under these trading names are combined for the purposes of deposit compensation from the FSCS. The FSCS is not applicable to deposits held at branches in the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man.
