Cancellation

If you are not happy with your choice of savings account, you may cancel it within 14 days of:
the day the contract is entered into; or
the day on which you receive the contract terms and conditions and other information on paper or electronically; whichever is later.

We will help you switch to another of our accounts or we will give you all your money back with any interest it has earned. We will ignore any notice period and any extra charges.

If you decide to exercise your right of cancellation you must inform the Society, in writing, within the 14 day period.

 

Payment of Interest

From 6th April 2016, taxpayers will have a new personal savings allowance. This means that up to £1,000 of income from savings (e.g. any interest earned) will be tax-free for basic rate taxpayers, and up to £500 of savings income will be tax-free for higher rate taxpayers.

For further information about these changes, go to GOV.UK and search for personal savings allowance.

 

Electronic Payments

If you have online banking then you can make electronic payments into your savings account. This can be by Faster Payment or Standing Order. The payer will need to send the payment to:

Earl Shilton Building Society
Sort Code 62-28-71
Account 00000000
Account No. (Your Earl Shilton Building Society Savings Account number)
Name

If your name and account number are not quoted the payment will be returned.
Payments into your account can only be made in sterling.

Please contact the Society if making a payment of more than £100,000 as this will need to be arranged via the CHAPS system.

 

Changing the way you write cheques

What do I need to do?

When you are paying a cheque into a building society or bank, do not make the cheque out simply to that organisation. Add further details, such as the name of the person to whom the money is being paid, in the payee line (for instance Earl Shilton Building Society, re: J.Smith). You should also draw a line through unused space on the cheque so unauthorised people cannot add extra numbers or names.

Tax Residency Self Certification Declaration Form

The UK government has, and will be signing, a number of inter-governmental agreements to share tax information, where applicable, with the tax authorities in other countries.  The requirement for financial institutions to collect certain information about each customer’s tax arrangement is now part of UK legislation.

If you are not a citizen and tax resident of the UK only you must complete a Tax Residency Self Certification Declaration Form (available in the downloads section) in addition to the savings account application form.  If the account you are opening is a tax favoured account such as a Cash ISA the Tax Residency Self Certification Declaration Form does not need to be completed.
