Credit interest rates correct at 8/11/11.

(1) You must fund your account with at least £750 per month from an external source. Cash, cheques and transfers from other personal Cumberland accounts will not count towards the minimum funding requirement. Transfers from Cumberland Business accounts will count towards the minimum funding requirement. In the case of joint accounts, one such source of income is acceptable.

(2) If you do not meet the minimum funding requirement in a calendar month, a charge of £2 will be applied to the account in the following month. The charge will be applied for every calendar month that the minimum funding requirement is not met. The charge will not be applied if the average balance of your account during a calendar month is £1,000 or above and your account has remained in credit. Further details of this charge can be found in the ‘Account Funding’ section of our Current Accounts leaflet.

(3) The Cumberland does not charge you to use your Cumberland card but the provider of an ATM or retailer may apply a charge.

(4) Gross rate is the contractual rate of interest payable before the deduction of income tax at the rate specified by law.

(5) Annual Equivalent Rate (AER) illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added each year.

(6) Net interest is the rate of interest which would be payable after allowing for the deduction of income tax at 20%, i.e. the rate specified by law. Net interest rates have been rounded and are for illustrative purposes only.

(7) EAR – Effective Annual Rate.
