What is the interest rate?
  • Interest rate is 0.50% tax free*/AER** variable.
  • Interest is calculated daily and paid six monthly on balances of £10 and over.
Can Triodos Bank change the interest rate? Yes – the interest rate is variable and can therefore change at any time. Please refer to section 7.3 of our Terms and Conditions for personal banking accounts.

At least 14 days’ notice in writing will be given of any reduction to the interest rate on this account.
What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit? £1,005.01

This estimate is based on £1,000 being deposited at account opening, no further deposits or withdrawals being made and interest being added to the account six monthly. This projection is for illustrative purposes only and does not take into account your personal circumstances.
How do I open and manage my account?
  • Can be opened by any UK resident aged 16 or over.

  • The minimum opening deposit is £10 and must be made by electronic transfer from a nominated account or by cheque. Once the opening deposit is made, funds can be paid in from any account.
  • There is no maximum balance, but the maximum current year’s subscriptions should not be more than the current tax year’s ISA allowance of £15,240.
  • In addition to making deposits that count towards the ISA subscription allowance, existing Triodos UK or other providers’ ISAs can be transferred in.
  • The account can be managed online or by post.
