Here to help you reach your savings goals….through regular savings!

Regular savings in a Community Bank General Saver account offers a buffer if things go wrong when you’re least expecting them.  Even a small amount of savings can soften the blow and help you avoid resorting to expensive borrowing.  Save as much as you can, as often as you can.

Dividend

As a community bank owned and controlled by our members we do not pay interest in the same way as most savings accounts.  Instead we pay an annual dividend to each ‘savings’ account.  The dividend rate is set at the AGM taking into account the financial position of the bank.  The dividend rates paid previously:

2016/17 – 0%

2015/16 – 0.5%

2014/15 – 1%

2013/14 – 0.5%

2012/13 – 0%

Please note we only pay a dividend on savings held in the general saver or one of our other savings accounts.

Junior Saver Accounts do not qualify for a dividend, as young people are not eligible to be members, but their savings accounts are also considered to receive an annual return.

Important information:

Your dividend is paid gross of tax so you should ensure you meet any taxation responsibilities that may be due.  Our financial year runs October to September.
