Derbyshire BS has re-entered the notice account market after a long absence, with an impressive 60 day offering.

The Platinum Notice account pays 3.05% yearly (3.01% monthly) on a minimum investment of £5K.

The annual gross rate is guaranteed to be at least 2.00% above base rate until 31 May 2013..

Earlier access is subject to a 60 day loss of interest, but if £25K or more is kept in the account withdrawals are notice and penalty free. There is a maximum investment cap of £250K.

At 3.05%, it is highly competitive in the notice account market overall and sits just below the market leader in the 60 day notice market.

The fact that earlier access is permitted on 60 days' loss of interest will be seen as a plus as this is lower than current market trends.

The account is also available from Cheshire BS and Dunfermline BS.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
