You are quoting rates for 1 year fixed-rate bonds right?

Anglo Irish are offering the best currently - 6.9% AER!! :o

All one year bonds,in the case of Nationwide there is emergency access(90 day loss) and Northern Rock(60 Day loss).Not sure about access on the other two,Derbyshire is usually a lock in.

NS&I still beats those if you take into account the tax element. Though income is not guaranteed.

NS and I is dependent on the inflation rate in one years time, it is somewhat distorted by the rise in the baserate currently.RPIX is only at 3.3%(an indication of where we might be at one year from now) add on the 1.35% bonus and that nets off at a good deal less than 6.9% gross would unless you are a 40% bracket investor.

Obviously the best option if you think Merv and the boys might give up on the inflation target and at least they can't go bust.But the actual return is an unknown dependent on future RPI.

As for will Merv and the boys give up on inflation.My take is that he is p*ssed off with HPI,CPI overshoots and Rachel frigging Lomax.He is an angry man on a mission.

abbey are doing a 7.25% monthly saver, max of £250 / month and a min of £20

Wow what a great way to maximise savings.

If you have a mortgage and you are a higher rate tax payer it pays 8-10% on your money (equivalent) and you can put it unlimited amounts tax free.

Why does the government tax savings. It's such a rip off. Mortgages and ISAs are the only way to invest tax efficiently.

I've always thought that; I guess it does fit in with the governments policy of making people spend.

Has savings interest always been taxed?

Looks crap, you can get 6.4-5 or 7 soon with no catches, like the £250 withdrawl fee + undefined refund costs to HSBC + 6 or 7 T&C relating to Premier accounts.

Offshore??? Not covered by the FS compensation scheme is it then? I dont know.

.....the higher the return the greater the risk....the angels said to the fools as they rushed in..... :ph34r:

Would deposits up to £35,000 not be protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme ? :

100% of the first £2,000 and 90% of the next £33,000 ?

Are most companies in UK who accept deposits members ?
