* - The gross rate is the contractual rate of interest payable before the deduction of income tax at the rate specified by law. Due to changes to the Personal Savings Allowance, from the 6 April 2016 all interest is paid gross. This is based on the current law and treatment of tax by HMRC which may be subject to change.

# - A.E.R. stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added once each year.
