Yorkshire Building Society

YBS have a range of easy-access and online savings options that could help you get started with saving.

They do not have current accounts available at the moment.
 
However, Norwich & Peterborough Building Society, who are part of the Yorkshire Building Society Group, do offer current account facilities.

Their online savings accounts include:

Help to Buy: ISA

This is a great scheme which helps you save with a 2.00% tax-free p.a./AER variable. You can open this Cash ISA with up to £1,200 in the first calendar month, a calendar month being the start to end of each month. During the following months, you can then save up to £200 per calendar month.

This account is designed for first time buyers saving for their first UK residential property. The name ‘help to buy’ is due to the 25% bonus incentive from the Government on your savings. The minimum bonus is £400 based on savings of £1,600 with a maximum bonus of £3,000 based on £12,000 saved. There are some rules. For example,

  • Withdrawals are permitted but won’t qualify for a Government bonus
  • This is not a flexible ISA so subject to subscription limits
