Compare Birmingham Midshires savings accounts

Part of the Lloyds Banking Group, Birmingham Midshires are specialist providers of financial products for savings and mortgages. They offer a number of savings accounts for customers to choose from. Finding the best match for your savings needs can be tough, so it’s important to make sure you have a thorough understand of the different options on offer.

Instant Access Savings Accounts

The most basic and easy to use kind of savings account, an instant access savings account (sometimes known as an easy access savings account) allows you to put money in and take money out whenever you like.

You will often be given a card to use at cash machines, or otherwise you may have to go into a branch to take money out. You usually also have the option to make transfers online or over the phone. Some instant access savings accounts only allow you to make a limited number of withdrawals each year without paying a penalty.

Fixed Rate Bonds

If you have a lump sum that you have no immediate use for, locking it away for a set period in a fixed rate savings bond can net you a good return. In exchange for agreeing not to touch your money for a period of time (usually 1-5 years) you will get a guaranteed interest rate. These rates are usually attractive, and will tend to be higher the longer you agree to lock you money away for.

If you do need to withdraw your funds early, some fixed rate bond providers will allow you to do this, but you will have to pay a penalty. This generally takes the form of an amount equivalent to a certain number of months’ interest.

Cash ISAs

If you are a UK tax payer it is often worth putting at least part of your savings into a cash ISA. These let you earn interest tax free on a set amount each year. This amount is decided by the government and changes regularly. For the 2017/18 tax year it is £20,000.

The two most common types of ISAs are instant access cash ISAs and fixed rate cash ISAs. Instant access ISAs allow you to put in and take out money as often as you need to, whereas fixed rate ISAs act like fixed rate bonds. This means you get a guaranteed rate of return, but cannot access your money for the lifetime of the ISA.

Fixed rate cash ISAs offer better interest rates than instant access cash ISAs in most cases, although the rate on an instant access ISA is variable, so it can go up as well as down.
