Tax-free savings with competitive rates

A Fixed Rate Cash ISA is a tax-free individual savings account, which means you won’t pay any tax on the interest that you earn.

You can save up to £20,000 into one cash ISA in any one tax year. With an OakNorth Fixed Rate Cash ISA, you’ll earn a set interest rate throughout, so you’ll know what your returns are upfront – and they won’t change. So, if you’re looking to make your money go further, see our range of ISAs with terms from 12 to 36 months.

Keeping on top of your savings has never been easier

Whether it’s moving money or opening new accounts, everything you need to keep track of your savings is on the OakNorth app.

How do I open a Fixed Rate Cash ISA?

Like a Fixed Rate Savings Account, a Fixed Rate Cash ISA requires you to lock your savings away for an agreed time. Except with a Fixed Rate Cash ISA you can withdraw money at any point if you really need to.

If you choose to withdraw your money before your term has ended, you’ll be charged a penalty fee on the amount withdrawn – equivalent to an interest deduction of 90 days for a 12-month term, 180 days for a 24-month term and 270 days for a 36-month term.

You should keep this in mind when choosing this option, as you’ll want to make sure you have a savings account that gives you the flexibility you need. Once you’ve chosen the right Fixed Rate ISA for you, either apply online or download the OakNorth app to open your new account.

What are customers are saying

Not the right account for you?

A Fixed Rate Cash ISA means putting away your savings to earn competitive interest rates and avoid penalty fees. Although we allow you to withdraw your money at any time, this comes with a penalty – equivalent to an interest reduction. So, if you think you’ll need regular access to your savings an Easy Access Savings Account may be a better fit for you.
