Fixed Rate Business Savings Accounts

These accounts offer competitive, secured interest rates over a fixed term. Perfect for long-term business planning.

What is a fixed rate savings account?

A fixed rate savings account offers an interest rate which doesn’t change, unlike easy access and notice accounts. In return for this stability, you agree not to access your funds for a set period of time. They are the perfect option for businesses who do not need immediate access to their funds and can often enjoy better interest rates than other types of accounts.

At Recognise Bank, you can start a fixed rate savings account with as little as £1,000.

Locking your business’s money away for a set period can have significant benefits. Here’s a rundown:

  • Better Planning
    Businesses that know how much interest they will earn on their savings can plan future years’ cash flow better.

  • Protection against interest rate fluctuations
    Fixed term savings accounts offer businesses full protection against interest rate fluctuations, preventing lower rates from eating into returns.

  • More competitive rates
    Locking money away for a pre-agreed period allows businesses to access more competitive, higher rates.
  • Fixed rate savings accounts offer a guaranteed interest rate for a set term, providing stability and predictability in returns. Once you deposit your funds, they typically remain locked until the end of the term, and early withdrawal often incurs penalties.
 
  • Notice savings accounts require you to give advance notice before withdrawing funds. While they offer more flexibility for accessing your money compared to Fixed Rate accounts, the interest rates can fluctuate and are not guaranteed for any period.

No, the interest rate is fixed from the date initial deposit is paid into your account.

At the end of the term, you will have options such as reinvesting in another fixed rate term, transferring to a different type of account, or withdrawing your funds, including the interest earned.
