About us

ICICI Bank UK PLC has its registered office at One Thomas More Square, London E1W 1YN. It is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority (Registration Number: 223268). It is subject to the laws of England and Wales. It is registered in England and Wales as a public limited company (Registration Number 04663024).

Account provider

ICICI BANK UK PLC – We are authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority (Registration Number: 223268).

 

We are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if a Bank is unable to meet its financial obligations. Most depositors – including most individuals and businesses – are covered by the scheme.

 

In respect of deposits, from 1 January 2016, an eligible depositor is entitled to claim up to £75,000. For joint accounts each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share so, for a joint account held by two eligible depositors, the maximum amount that could be claimed would be £75,000 each (making a total of £150,000). The £75,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all the eligible depositor’s accounts with us including their share of any joint account, and not to each separate account.

 

For further information about the compensation provided by the FSCS (including the amounts covered and eligibility to claim) please ask at your local branch, refer to the FSCS website www.fscs.org.uk or call the FSCS on 0800 678 1100 or 020 7741 4100. Please note only compensation related queries should be directed to the FSCS.

What is the interest rate?

0.50% AER1

 

AER1 - AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year.

 

Note: Interest is paid gross. If you are a UK tax payer you may have to pay tax on interest earned in excess of your Personal Savings Allowance. For information and guidance, please refer to the HMRC website.

 

Interest rates are subject to change and may vary from time to time. To check the latest interest rates ;

  • visit www.icicibank.co.uk/interest_rates.html
  • Speak to a member of our bank staff
  • Call our Customer Service Centre on 0344 412 4444 (Calls to this number use free plan minutes if available, otherwise they cost the same as 01/02 prefix calls)

 

Interest is accrued daily on the day end cleared balance and paid into your Account on the last business day of each month. This means that interest is compounded monthly.


Can ICICI Bank UK PLC change the interest rate?

ICICI Bank UK PLC has the right to change the rate of interest.

  • ICICI Bank UK PLC will keep you informed about changes in the interest rates on your Account/s by sending you a personal notice within 30 days of the change.
  • If ICICI Bank UK PLC reduces the interest rate to your disadvantage, you will be given two months prior notice and if you wish, we will close your Account or help you switch your Account to a Bank of your choice.
