What is the interest rate?

  Annual interest
Monthly interest
Balance Tax-free^ p.a./AER* AER* Tax-free^ p.a.
£0.01 plus 4.55% 4.55% 4.46%

We calculate the interest daily and pay it annually, on the anniversary of the date you opened the account, or monthly, at the end of the last day of each month.


Interest can be added to the account or paid into another suitable account.

Can Coventry Building Society change the interest rate?

The interest rate is variable, so it can go up or down at any time.


For more details about why we may change the rate, as well as how and when we’ll let you know, see our Saving Accounts Terms and Conditions booklet (section 4).

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



This would be the balance after 12 months if £1,000 was paid in, all interest was paid back into the account annually, there was no change to the interest rate and no money was taken out or paid in.

How do I open and manage my account?

How to open and manage

  • Online
  • Call 0800 121 8899
  • By post
  • Pop into a branch (to manage your account this way, you’ll need to ask us for a passbook. A passbook based version of this account can be opened by visiting a branch)
  • You must be aged 16 years or older and a UK resident


How to put money into your account

  • Pay in cash or cheques in a branch
  • Post us a cheque
  • Set up transfers from an account with another bank or building society or another account with us. To do this you will need the last 8 digits of your account number and sort code 40-63-01
  • You can transfer in current and/or previous years’ ISA savings using an ISA transfer. If you’re transferring in your current years’ savings, then you must transfer all of it
  • The minimum balance is £1
  • You can pay in up to your annual ISA allowance each tax year, depending on any money you may have already paid into other types of ISA (e.g. stocks and shares). For the current tax year the annual ISA allowance is £20,000


How to keep track of your account

If you don’t have a passbook (or you have one but don’t keep it updated), you’ll get a statement within a month of any money leaving your account. We won’t send more than one a month. If you have a passbook and keep it updated, there’s no need for statements. You can get statements by post, or go paperless if you use Online Services.

Can I withdraw money?

This is a flexible ISA. You can take money out of your account up to four times a year without having to pay a charge. From the fifth withdrawal onwards (which can include closure), you’ll receive a charge equal to 50 days’ interest based on the amount you’re withdrawing. The charge will be deducted from the balance of the account, at the time of the withdrawal. Each ‘year’ in this case starts on the anniversary of the day you opened the account.


How to take money out of your account

  • ISA transfer to another Coventry Building Society ISA or to another ISA provider, without losing your tax-free status
  • Ask for a transfer to another Coventry Building Society account or to your Named Bank Account, online or by phone
  • Request cheques by post
  • If you choose to have a passbook, you’ll also be able to take money out by cash and by cheque at a branch, and transfer to any other UK-based account

Additional information

Interest on ISAs is paid tax-free, that is without tax deducted. ISAs are a savings scheme initiated by the Government, and are subject to change by them. For example the favourable tax treatment may not be maintained.


This account is a limited issue, so we may stop accepting applications at any time. You can only have one Four Access ISA at a time.


* AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and shows what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added each year.
