Opening and managing a Notice Account

In this guide, you’ll find out all that you need to know about opening and managing  Notice Accounts at Raisin UK.

As with any savings account that we offer, to apply for a Notice Account through our marketplace, you need to register for a Raisin UK Account:

Register for a Raisin UK Account

Please be aware that although you can apply for all savings accounts from the moment that you register with us, you won’t be able to fund any savings accounts until you receive an email confirming that your Raisin UK Account application has been approved, including the details of how to fund your application.

Once your Raisin UK Account is fully open, you can apply for a Notice Account by following these easy steps:

Step 1:
Log in to your Raisin UK Account

You can find the link in the top right-hand corner of any page on our website

Step 2:
Navigate to ‘Our Marketplace’

Once you are in the main dashboard of your Raisin UK Account

Step 3:
Find the Notice Account you want to open

Make sure you click on the flexible savings option in the savings table

Step 4:
Check that you’re happy with the terms, rate and notice period, then click ‘Open account’

Once you have ‘Open account’, you will see more details about the account on a summary page, detailing all the terms and conditions

Step 5:
Enter the amount that you want to deposit where indicated

Step 6:
Confirm your order

Enter the six-digit mobile verification number we send to your mobile phone as an SMS text message and submit your application

Step 7:
Transfer your deposit to your Raisin UK Account

Log into your personal bank or building society’s online banking, and transfer your deposit to your Raisin UK Account (if you haven’t already done so). Use your unique Raisin UK Account number and sort code we sent to you in your welcome email in the payee details. You will also find these details in the top right-hand corner when logged into your Raisin UK Account.

That’s it. In the unlikely event that one of our partner banks require any additional documentation to open your account, we’ll let you know.

Some things to keep in mind

When opening a Notice Account, it’s important to pay attention to the notice period, as this is the amount of time it will take to close the account before your deposit and any interest or profit that you’ve earned transfers to your Raisin UK Account.

Once the amount you told us you want to deposit is available in your Raisin UK Account, we’ll automatically process your application with the partner bank, and you won’t be able to change the amount.

Closing your Notice Account

When you want to withdraw your deposit and any interest or profit you’ve accrued, you’ll need to enter into your notice period to close your Notice Account. You can enter into your notice period by following these steps:

Step 1: Log into your Raisin UK Account.

Step 2: Visit ‘My savings’ and find the Notice Account that you want to close.

Step 3: View the details and in the ‘Availability’ row click ‘Closing your Notice Account’.

Step 4: Follow the instructions provided and enter the six-digit mobile verification number we send to your mobile phone as an SMS text message to confirm that you want to close this account.

Your funds will transfer to your Raisin UK Account up to four days after your notice period elapses. Once your funds become available, why not consider using them to open another savings account through our marketplace?
