Offsetting with B

If you have a Clydesdale Bank or Yorkshire Bank Offset Mortgage, you can use your B Current and B Instant Savings account to offset against your mortgage.

This means you can use the money in your current and savings account to reduce the amount of interest you pay on your mortgage. Remember, no credit interest will be paid on B account credit balances that are used for offsetting.

Find out more about offsetting. Or just get in touch with the team at B on 0800 678 3654.

[1]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. From 6th April 2016 we no longer deduct tax from any interest earned, following the introduction of a Personal Savings Allowance. If you earn interest over your Personal Savings Allowance you will be required to pay any tax due directly to HM Revenue and Customs. Please visit www.gov.uk (opens in a window) for more information.
