Important information about taxation

 

From the 6 April 2016 credit interest on all accounts will be paid gross (under new legislation tax will not be deducted when credit interest is paid). If your credit interest is more than your Personal Savings Allowance you may still have tax to pay. Please see www.gov.uk for information on the Personal Savings Allowance or speak to a tax advisor.


Any reference to tax is based on our understanding of current legislation and HM Revenue & Customs practice. The law relating to taxation is always liable to change.
