Can Hinckley & Rugby Building Society change the interest rate?

We may change interest rates at any time if we reasonably believe that the change is needed, for any of the reasons outlined in the Savings Account Terms and Conditions booklet, Condition 7.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months?

Based on an initial deposit of £5,000.00, after a 12 month period the estimated balance would be £5,262.50.

Based on an initial deposit of £2,500.00, after a 12 month period the estimated balance would be £2,631.25.

These figures are provided for illustrative purposes only and assume that no further deposits or withdrawals are made, there is no change in interest rate, and interest is added annually. They do not take into account your individual circumstances.

Additional information

Personal Savings Allowance is the amount of interest you can earn before paying tax on it. If you are a basic taxpayer, you can earn up to £1,000.00 interest without paying tax. If you are a higher rate taxpayer, you can earn up to £500.00 interest without paying tax. If you are a additional rate taxpayer, you cannot earn any interest without paying tax.

If you have savings income over your Personal Savings Allowance, you are responsible for making sure you are paying the correct tax directly to HM Revenue & Customs.

* Gross rate – the annual rate of interest to be paid on a savings account without any deduction being made in respect of personal Income Tax liability.

** AER – stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added once a year.

Identification Requirements

We need to confirm the identity of every customer who applies for an account with the Society. We do this to protect you against the risk of identity fraud and to comply with money laundering regulations.

We use an electronic verification system when you open a savings account. If this is successful, you will not need to do anything. However, in certain cases you will be asked to provide additional proof of identity (for example if you are not listed on the electoral roll or you have recently moved house).

If you are required to provide additional identification, you must supply two items acceptable to the Society to verify your name and address. The Society will be unable to open your account until we have completed identification procedures.

If you think you will need to provide identification, please visit hrbs.co.uk/proving-your identity for details of acceptable documentation or contact us to discuss.


We will need to see either your birth certificate or passport, and a document confirming your address. This could be a bank statement or utility bill and can be in the name of a parent or guardian living at the same address if not available in your name. These documents need to be originals, not photocopies, and they will be returned to you as quickly as possible.

If a nominee is registered on the account the document to confirm your address is not required.
