12 Month Fixed Rate Saver

Save for 12 months and
get a better return

With interest rates remaining at a record low, it’s sensible to consider every opportunity to generate extra interest from your charity’s hard-earned funds.

The CAF 12 Month Fixed Rate Saver is a fixed rate account provided by Shawbrook Bank Limited and is available to charitable organisations.

If you don't need access to your money for a year, then this could be the perfect account for your charity. It offers a fixed rate for a 12 month period. After opening your account, further deposits can be made throughout the term, providing the account is open for funding and the maximum balance is not exceeded.

Because your money is deposited for 12 months, you earn a more rewarding interest rate of 1.30% Gross* rate/AER**.

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 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.
