Current rates effective from 24/04/2013
Open an Regular Saver with a maximum of £250, then deposit between £1 to £250 every month either, in branch, by post or online (account cannot be opened online)
Please note, attempting to send cheques or transfer in more than £250 may result in the account being closed
For the first year you'll earn a fixed rate of 1.50% AER** on your savings
You can also earn an extra bonus of 1.5% AER** if you save every month for 12 months and make no more than one withdrawal a year
In following years your savings will earn a variable rate of interest - but you can still earn your 1.5% annual bonus
Interest is generated for each full day your funds are in the account with your interest being paid annually. E.g If you invest £250 for the first month you will earn interest on that balance and for each instalment thereafter.
Only one Regular Saver account can be opened per customer throughout the life of the product. You cannot open a new Regular Saver after the fixed rate period has ended.
Need a way to save for something special - like a holiday or Christmas
Don't mind tying up your savings for an even better rate
Want a great rate that's fixed for the first year
Just pop into your local branch or download an application form.
You can then save by paying into your account in any branch, online, or by sending in a cheque.
Remember - when you pay a cheque into your account, don't make the cheque out simply to N&P. You should include details about the account or the person you're paying the money to. It's also important to draw a line through the unused space on the cheque so that extra information or numbers can't be added afterwards.
You can also arrange a standing order with your bank or building society for regular payments to be made into your Regular Saver Account, or you can transfer money into your Regular Saver Account at any time. Just quote your Regular Saver Account number and sort code.
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.

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.

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.

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.
