E-Regular Saver is designed for regular savings, which means you must make a payment into your account each month and with a maximum of one withdrawal in the year to achieve the bonus element.
Interest is paid for each full day that your money is deposited in your account. You can put up to £250 in your account the day you open it which will earn a full year’s interest. Each month thereafter you can deposit up to £250 and it will earn interest every day the money is in the account up to the anniversary date when your annual interest is paid.
Eg. Account opened 1 January 2011 with the maximum £250. Interest is earned on this deposit for 365 days (a full year) before the interest is calculated and paid back to the account. If you deposit a further £250 on 1 February, it will earn 334 days interest (February to December) before the interest is calculated and paid back to the account and so on.
You will not receive a full year's worth of interest on the total amount you deposit with us over the 12 month period (maximum £3,000).
Anything from £1 to £250 a month.
You’ll be paid a bonus on each anniversary of opening your account, as long as you have made 12 consecutive monthly payments in the account and not more than one withdrawal from it during that year. If the account is closed at any time other than on the anniversary date of account opening, no bonus or part bonus will be paid for that year.

Just tell your bank or building society that's what you want to do. Simply give them your E-Regular Saver account number and sort code.
To send money to your account from within the UK using BACS you should ask the sender of the funds to use your account number and our UK sort code which is 08-60-81.
If money is to being sent via CHAPS (which is a same day transfer system), the payer will need to send the payment to;
Sort code 23-67-99; account number 00000000 or the word 'DIRECT'. The payer must also quote a reference (e.g. xxxx) including your name and your account number. The bank the payer uses will help them complete the form with these details. If the payer does not quote your account name and number, unfortunately the payment will be returned.
If the money is coming from overseas, by way of a telegraphic transfer or SWIFT payment, the payer can send;
Payments from Europe to IBAN: GB23BARC20673700708852; Swift Code BARCGB22 and the payer must also quote a reference including your name and your account number. Again, the bank the payer uses will help them complete the form with these details. If the payer does not quote your account name and number, unfortunately the payment will be returned;
Payments coming from outside Europe to Sort Code 20-67-37; account 00708852; Swift Code: BARCGB22 and again must quote your name and account number, If the payer does not quote your account name and number, the payment will be returned.
Please note that your bank or building society may apply a daily limit on how much you can send to your new N&P account.
Interest may be paid gross (i.e. without tax being deducted) to customers who are not liable for income tax. To receive interest gross, you must complete the ‘Getting your interest with tax taken off’ (R85) Form for each of your accounts and pass these on to the provider of the accounts. You can download R85 forms here (along with the associated help sheet). They are also available from any N&P branch or by calling us on 0845 300 2511.
If you want to find out if you can claim back tax that has been deducted, and how to do so, you can contact HMRC on 0845 366 7850 or visit their website at www.hmrc.gov.uk.
Whether you can benefit from gross, net or tax free interest is dependent on your own personal circumstances and tax status and so may be subject to change in the future.
Read our General Savings and Investments Terms and Conditions.
Make 12 consecutive monthly payments and no more than one withdrawal in a year and you could get 3.00% AER** fixed for 12 months - this includes a 1.5% bonus.
Put away as little as £1 a month.

At N&P, we understand how important it is for you to be satisfied with your savings accounts. If you open a new savings account (other than a fixed rate bond) and within 14 days of opening it or the day on which you receive the terms and conditions (whichever is the later), you decide that it does not meet your requirements, we will transfer the balance to another N&P account. This is called a 'cooling off' period. Alternatively, we will return the balance to you without any charge or notice being required. Any transfer or refund will be subject to the relevant funds having cleared. A period of at least four full Working Days, excluding the day you paid a cheque into your Account, must be allowed for cheques paid into the Account to clear. Occasionally, cheques may be returned unpaid after this period.
This cooling off period does not apply to fixed rate bonds.
If you do wish to change your mind please visit your local branch or call us on 0845 300 2511.
These are the specific conditions which apply to N&P's E-Regular Saver account in addition to the General Conditions for savings and investments. In the event of a difference between any of these conditions and any of the General Conditions, then the specific condition will apply.

References to “we”, “our”, “us” and “the Society” are references to Yorkshire Building Society trading as Norwich & Peterborough Building Society.
I wish to open an E-Regular Saver Account with Yorkshire Building Society trading as Norwich & Peterborough Building Society and I declare that:
(a) I am the beneficial owner of the monies which will be invested in the Account and that no other person has any interest in such monies;
(b) The monies invested will not be held by me as a bare trustee for a body corporate or for person(s) who include a body corporate;
(c) I agree to be bound by the Rules of Yorkshire Building Society as amended from time to time (a copy of which is available on request from the Society);
(d) I have read and accept the specific conditions of the E-Regular Saver Account and the General Conditions for savings and investments. I understand and agree that in the event of a difference between any specific condition and any of the General Conditions, the specific condition will apply;
(e) I agree to be bound by the Charitable Assignment Agreement
(f) I agree to the use of my information as explained in this application.
Agreement to use Electronic Communications
I agree with the Society that it may communicate with me for all purposes (other than marketing*) using the e-mail address given by me in my application (or using such other e-mail address as I may notify to the Society and which I wish to be used for such purpose from time to time). In particular, and without limiting this agreement, I expressly agree that the Society may send me a copy of its Summary Financial Statement, Annual Auditor's Report and any other communications which it is required by law to send me, in electronic form using such e-mail address, or by notifying me at such e-mail address of where and how I may access copies thereof (where the law permits) on a web site.
* This Agreement does not relate to electronic communications sent for marketing purposes. You have already indicated whether or not you wish the Society to send you electronic communications for marketing purposes in the Data Protection section of the application. Please note that the Society can only communicate with you using a single e-mail address. Accordingly, if you advise the Society that you wish it to communicate with you at a different address than that given in your application at some point in the future, the new address will be used for all forms of electronic communication.
Charitable Assignment Agreement
The wording in paragraphs 1 to 3 below does not apply if you were a member of Norwich & Peterborough Building Society immediately before its merger with Yorkshire Building Society and have remained a member since that date. If this is the case, please write to us detailing your mortgage and/or investment account numbers.
1. By applying to open an account I agree with the Society and Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation (“the Foundation”) that I will assign to the Foundation (or to any charity(ies) nominated by it but to no other person) the rights of any relevant conversion benefits which are defined below. This obligation will not apply to me or may apply to me for less than 5 years if I fall within any class of persons, which as at today's date, the Society decides would be inappropriate to be bound by this assignment condition. This obligation is irrevocable and authorises the Society to give the Foundation (or to any charity(ies) nominated by it) any such benefits without further notice to me. I understand that neither the Society nor the Foundation will release me from this Agreement or vary its terms and I will continue to be bound by the above condition even if the Society decides at some time in the future (and announces any such decision by press release) that it is no longer in the best interests of the Society to continue with the above assignment condition generally in respect of new members.
2. “Relevant conversion benefits” means any benefits under the terms of any future transfer of the Society's business to a successor company (ie on a conversion or take over) which I might become entitled to as a member or depositor with the Society at any time within 5 years immediately following the date on which this account is opened. Relevant conversion benefits does not include the statutory right to have shares in the Society (including any balances on share accounts) converted into deposits with the company on a conversion or takeover. If the Society merges with any other society, after the date of such merger the “Society” includes such other society.
I authorise the Society to pass to the Foundation such information relating to me and all my accounts with the Society, as the Foundation may reasonably require in order to administer this agreement to assign and for no other purpose.
