How do I open and manage my account?
  • You can only open an account if you are a UK registered or unregistered charity.
  • For registered charities at least 50% of trustees/directors must be permanent UK residents (excludes Channel Islands, Isle of Man and other Crown dependencies) and only liable to pay tax in the UK. For unregistered charities all trustees/directors must be permanent UK residents and only liable to pay tax in the UK.
  • We reserve the right to reject any non-UK signatories.
  • All trustees/directors/additional signatories must be 18 or over.
  • You must notify us immediately if any trustee/director circumstance changes and they are no longer a permanent UK resident and/or no longer only liable for UK tax.
  • You can open an account by printing the online application form and posting it to Savings and Investment Services, CAF Financial Solutions Limited, 25 Kings Hill Avenue, Kings Hill, West Malling, Kent ME19 4TA.
  • The minimum initial deposit and ongoing balance is £1,000.

  • Further deposits can be made at any time from your nominated UK account, subject to the maximum balance, and provided that the account has not been closed to new funding.
  • Additional deposits will not affect the maturity date of your account.
  • You can manage the account by telephone or by post.
Can I withdraw money?
  • No. Withdrawals or early closure are not permitted during the term.
  • This account has a fixed term, so you can only withdraw your money at the end of the fixed term (also known as ‘maturity’).
  • If the end of the fixed-term falls on a non-working day, your funds will be made available on the next working day.
  • Shawbrook Bank will write to you before maturity to remind you of the date that your fixed term ends. At maturity, you can either withdraw your funds or transfer them into a new CAF account provided by Shawbrook Bank (subject to any specific account terms and conditions). If you do not let Shawbrook Bank know what you wish to do by the maturity date, your account will convert to a CAF Matured Funds account and the interest rate will be confirmed to you in writing. The CAF Matured Funds account is subject to the following conditions:
  • You cannot make additional deposits into the account
  • Withdrawals can be made without giving prior notice
  • Interest earned on the Matured Funds account will be paid annually on 31st December and at closure of the account.
Additional information
Interest is paid Gross.

1Gross means that all interest will be paid without any deduction of tax. You are responsible for paying any tax due to HMRC.

2AER stands for the Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year.
