 AER (Annual Equivalent Rate) is the equivalent rate if the interest was paid and compounded once a year. Gross rate interest is the interest payable without taking account of any tax payable. Credit interest is calculated daily on the cleared credit balance in your account.
 The Effective Annual Rate is used to express the cost of borrowing on current accounts. The EAR takes account of the rate of interest charged, the frequency it is levied to accounts and compounding of interest. It does not include overdraft fees and is variable.
