Covid 19 Status

In line with HM Government requirements to fight the spread of Covid-19 we have measures in place to ensure that we protect our staff, their families and the wider community, but also to ensure that there is minimal disruption to our customers.

Your access to online Multi Agency Credit Reports, Expert Help and Account Management remains unaffected. We take great pride in the support that we provide to our customers and throughout this period will do all we can to minimise the impact on our services. While the country remains in lockdown we will continue to support your queries via a dedicated and experienced team that will be securely working from home, and supported by a Management Team that will continue to be based at our head office and who will be able to provide customer support as required.

The security measures that we have in place to protect your Personal Data, in line with our Privacy Policy, will mean that some elements of our personalised support are affected during this period as our support team will be working with anonymised data when working remotely. Freephone access to our Credit Analysts has been removed during this period while we focus our efforts on continuing to reply to all of your emails and secure messages within one working day.

Thanks for your understanding, and we hope to have full customer support available as soon as possible and wish you well during these challenging times.

Deposit Account

What is a Deposit Account?

A Deposit Account is an account with a bank or Building Society which pays a variable rate of interest. You may get a higher rate of interest if you choose an account which doesn't give you instant access to your money, as is commonplace with a number of Building Societies. Withdrawals can only be made after giving the necessary notice.


Q: What are the different types of deposit account?

A: There are a few different types of deposit account to choose from depending on your circumstances including basic savings accounts, student savings accounts and money market accounts. To find the one that works best for you consider how much money you’re willing to put away each month, when you’ll want to access the funds and how much interest you’re looking for.

Q: What are the interest rates of a deposit account?

A: Interest rates vary from lender to lender and indeed account type to account type, so how much you save will depend on who you save with and which savings product you choose. Typically the interest rates are between 0.5% and 2.5%.
