E-ISA (Issue 3)

Rates correct as at 6 APR 2017

Our E-ISA is a simple online ISA account. It has all the benefits of an ISA, but can only be opened and operated online. So if you prefer doing things online, its even easier to keep track of your savings.

You can open the account with as little as £1 and can make unlimited withdrawals to your Nominated Accounts (as defined in the Online Conditions) without losing interest - just make sure you keep the balance above £1.

Interest rate:


0.75% Tax-free§ p.a./AER (variable)

If the balance falls below £1, the basic investment rate of interest which is currently 0.05% Tax free§ p.a./AER(variable) shall apply.

Can Leeds Building Society change the interest rate?Yes. Please see condition 10 of the Online Investment Conditions which provide details as to when and how we can change the interest rate.
What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1000 deposit?Assuming that £1,000 is deposited into the account on 1st October 2017 and no further deposits or withdrawals are made, then based on an interest rate of 0.75% you will receive a £7.50 interest payment after 12 months, giving an overall account balance of £1,007.50.

Can I withdraw money?Unlimited withdrawals can be made to your Nominated Accounts (as defined in the Online Conditions) without notice or loss of interest, subject to the minimum balance of £1 being maintained.
