Interest Rate Changes

Can Royal Bank of Scotland change the interest rate?

Yes, these rates are variable. If the rates are going down and your balance is £100 or more, we'll give you at least 14 days' notice. If the rates are going down and your balance is less than £100, we'll inform you before the change or shortly afterwards. If the rates are going up, we'll inform you before the change or shortly afterwards. For more information, please see section 9.2 of the Savings Account Terms (PDF, 501 KB).

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a range of deposits?
