An easy access savings account is a type of account that lets you save money and earn interest with few restrictions. You can deposit and withdraw money without notice or penalty, and you can open an account with a small amount of money – only £1,000 with Recognise Bank.
The interest rate on an easy-access savings account is variable and can change with the Bank of England (BoE) base rate.
Easy access savings accounts are suitable for businesses looking for quick and easy access to their money. However, they offer lower interest rates compared to accounts where you must give notice before making a withdrawal.
