100 Day Notice Cash ISA (Issue 2)

melton tax free savings accounts

A Cash ISA (Individual Savings Account) is an investment that enables annual sums to be saved and on which interest is paid free of tax. However, it’s not possible to state that favourable tax treatment will last forever as it’s the government not the Society that is responsible for the tax treatment.

Interest is calculated on a daily basis and added to the account annually on 31 March.

Can the Melton Building Society change the interest rate?

The interest rate is variable, which means we reserve the right to change them to reflect market conditions, to comply with legal or regulatory guidelines and to protect the long-Society’s long-term future.

We’ll give you fourteen days’ notice before any change that would disadvantage you.

For full details, please read our Terms and Conditions.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit?

Based on the current rate of interest, if you deposited £1,000 in this account, after 12 months you would have £1048.00.

This figure is only an estimate, based on there being no additional deposits, withdrawals or rate changes in that time with all interest being added to your account. This figure is for illustrative purposes only, and does not take into account your individual circumstances.

How do I manage and open my account?

To open an account, see how to apply below. Manage your account by visiting a branch of the Society or by sending us your written instructions.

This account is only for UK-resident individuals aged 16 or over (subject to an exception for certain Crown employees, their spouse or registered civil partner).

From 6 April 2023 the overall ISA subscription limit for 2023-24 will be £20,000. New subscriptions can be split in any proportion between Cash and Stocks and Shares ISAs as the saver chooses. However, a saver will only be able to pay into a maximum of one Cash ISA and one Stocks and Shares ISA each year.

Accounts can be opened with a minimum amount of £25 and the maximum that can be held in this account is £500,000. You may invest up to the maximum Cash ISA limit in a single tax year.

Withdrawals have no effect on the subscription limits. This means that once the limit has been reached for the tax year, you cannot make any further investments in that year regardless of any withdrawals made.

Transfers in of ISA funds are not permitted.

  • Investments must be in your sole name only.
  • You may subscribe to only one Cash ISA in any one tax year.
  • You must be resident and ordinarily resident in the UK.
  • You will be and must remain in beneficial ownership of the investment and it must not be used as security for a loan.
  • The Society will notify you, if because any failure to satisfy the provisions of the ISA Regulations, your Cash ISA has, or will, become void
  • If you were to die before 6 April 2023, any interest due up to the date of death will qualify for income tax exemption, but not afterwards as the account will cease to be an ISA.
  • In the event of death on or after 6th April 2024, the account will be designated as a "continuing account of a deceased investor" or "continuing ISA" and interest accrued before and after date of death will be exempt from tax. The ISA will continue until either:

a) the completion of the deceased's estate
b) the day after the 3rd anniversary of the investor's death
c) the closure of the account.

  • In the event of you opening a Cash ISA, the application remains valid for subscriptions made in the next and consecutive years. However, where a break between subscriptions lasts for a whole tax year, we will need a fresh application before subscriptions can recommence.
Can I withdraw money?
