Compare National Counties Building Society savings accounts

Opening the right savings account is integral to helping your savings grow quickly. The best savings account for you will depend on a number of factors including your personal circumstances and savings goals.

National Counties Building Society has a wealth of savings options that may help you.

Easy Access Savings Accounts

Easy access savings accounts can keep you flexible with your savings. With an easy access account you can earn interest whilst enjoying unlimited withdrawals from your savings.

National Counties Building Society has a number of easy access accounts, which have different interest rates and maximum balance.

Notice Savings Accounts

Notice savings accounts will ask you to sacrifice some flexibility for the chance of getting higher interest, as they will usually need a number of days’ notice to make a withdrawal.

The notice savings account from National Counties Building Society has slightly higher interest than their instant access account and requires 45 days’ notice for a withdrawal.

Cash ISAs

If you want to earn tax-free interest then a Cash ISA may be a good option.  A cash ISA could be useful, if you have a substantial amount of savings and you are likely to earn multiple thousands of pounds worth of interest. This is because cash ISAs give you the opportunity to earn up to £20,000 tax-free interest.

The cash ISA from the National Counties Building Society gives you the option to withdraw from your savings at any point, as well as earn up to £20,000 tax-free interest.  It should be noted that cash ISAs rarely have the best interest rates on the market, but the opportunity to earn tax-free interest cannot be ignored.
