Compare Yorkshire Bank savings accounts

Yorkshire Bank operates as a trading division of Clydesdale Bank. Their different savings accounts offer various features making some more suitable for long term saving and others better for short term, flexible saving.

Below we explain the main kinds of savings accounts Yorkshire Bank offers and how they could suit your saving needs.

Current Accounts

It will likely make sense to keep as much of your savings as possible in your current account as these usually offer good rates, up to a threshold. 

If you exceed your deposit threshold, you may not earn any interest at all on the excess balance. In this case, you will almost certain benefit from transferring the non-earning portion of your savings into a dedicated savings account.

Instant Access Savings Accounts

If having the ability to add and remove money from your savings account whenever you need it appeals, an instant access savings account is a good choice. There is normally no fee or penalty for making deposits and withdrawals, although there may be a yearly limit on how many you can make.

Most instant access accounts now come with online and telephone banking and you may also benefit from a cash card allowing you to take money out at cash points.

Fixed Rate Bonds

Savers who want a relatively safe way of earning a return should look closely at fixed rate bonds. They offer a guaranteed rate of interest over a set period (generally 1-5 years) in exchange for locking your money away until the period expires. Usually you will get a better interest rate the longer the bond lasts for, so these can be a very attractive choice for long term saving.

Cash ISAs

If you normally have to pay UK tax, you will likely benefit from taking out a cash ISA. These allow you to legally avoid tax on the interest you earn on deposits beneath an annual limit set by the government. For the 2017/18 tax year that amount is £20,000.

There are two basic types of ISA you need to consider – instant access and fixed term. These essentially act like instant access savings accounts and fixed term bonds respectively, but with the added bonus of not needing to pay tax on the interest you earn.

It is worth noting that the interest rates on cash ISAs tend to be a little lower than for some other types of savings accounts. This means you have to weigh up your likely tax savings against the amount you stand to potentially lose by taking a lower interest rate.
