Business 6 Month Saver


We currently need about four weeks to open your account. If we need more information, it may take a little longer.

Please bear with us and avoid calling in for an update.

Why choose this account?

  • Earn 5.00% AER/gross p.a. (fixed)
    We’ll add your interest when the fixed 6 month term is over.
  • Make a single opening deposit
    Pay in between £5,000 and £10 million at the start – and that’s it for 6 months. No withdrawals can be made for 6 months.
  • No fees or charges
    We won’t charge you a penny for any of our business savings accounts.

If you become a member of the Society when you open a Business Savings account with us, we need to let you know about our most recent summary financial statement and auditors' reports. You can find these published on

You can access our Review of the Year by navigating to our 'Summary Financial Statement' page where we show a summary of our accounts. By navigating to our 'Results and Accounts' page and selecting the relevant year, you can view our review of the Year and latest full annual report and accounts, which contains our auditors' report.

You can also find out what sort of personal information we'll ask you for on our 'How we use your information' page.

Nationwide Business Savings accounts aren't current accounts and can't be used for everyday transactions.

If you don’t need to access your money for 6 months, our 6 months Saver Account rewards your longer-term commitment with a fixed rate of interest.
