AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and shows what the interest rate would be if we paid interest and added it to your account each year. The gross rate is the interest rate we pay before income tax is taken
off. The net rate is the interest rate we pay after deduction of income tax at the rate specified by law. Rates may change and we pay interest each month. EAR stands for Effective Annual Rate and represents the
yearly cost of an overdraft, which takes account of how often we charge interest to the account, and does not include any other fees or charges. Overdrafts depend on your circumstances and you must repay
any overdraft when we ask in line with our General Terms and Conditions.
