If you don't provide instructions for your Business Investment Account at maturity, your funds will be automatically placed into our Business Investment Account holding facility by default. When your funds are in the holding facility, they’re renewed at a fixed interest rate every seven days until we receive your instructions. You can give us instructions at any time, once you decide what you want to do. Holding facility funds earn an interest rate, which may be lower than the rate offered for a fixed term and may be subject to change. If your funds have been left in the Business Investment Account holding facility for more than 6 months, we'll automatically renew your funds as a rolling 1 month term at the standard interest rate at the time, until you provide us with instructions.

Fees and charges

There are no set up or establishment fees.

If you want to withdraw your Business Investment Account before it matures, you’ll need to give us 31 days' notice. Early withdrawal may reduce returns and you may incur a prepayment interest adjustment and administration fee.

 

Keep track of your investment

It’s important to keep track of your Business Investment Account so you can manage your investment before it matures.

We will send you a letter roughly a week before your Business Investment Account matures, letting you know your options.

Whether you’ve given us instructions or not, you will also have a grace period of 7 days (including maturity date) to tell us what you want us to do with your funds.
