    Notes:

    • The interest rate for each tier only applies to money held in that tier and not to the account balance as a whole. Total interest paid will be a blended rate depending on the money held in each tier. Therefore, the interest rates shown should not be used for comparative purposes with other accounts, unless they operate on a similar basis.
    • Interest rates are subject to variation and interest is paid to your account quarterly, in arrears. Interest will not be credited or paid if the amount of such interest, at the end of each quarter, is less than £2.50.
    • There are no routine bank transaction charges and interest is paid to your account without any deduction of tax.
    • The Annual Equivalent Rate (AER) represents the annual rate effectively received by your account if the interest at gross rate applied during a year remained in the account and itself earned interest.
    • AJ Bell receives payments from banks based on the aggregate cash balances held across all accounts. The amount we receive will vary depending on the total cash balances held and market interest rates. Over the foreseeable future, we expect to receive between 0.10% below and 0.15% above the prevailing base rate for cash held within a Lifetime ISA, although it may be higher or lower when interest rates are volatile. These payments are used to pay interest at the rates shown on our website, and we retain the amount received above these rates to keep our administration, custody and dealing charges low.

    Notes:

We'll take all charges from your Lifetime ISA, unless you've requested otherwise. These charges and rates are effective from from 1 July 2022. You must always ensure that there is sufficient cash held to cover our charges when they are due for payment. VAT is only applicable where indicated.
