Leeds BS has re-entered the internet market with the launch of a new issue of its popular Online Access account.

The Online Access Account Issue 5 pays a rate of 3.05% yearly including a 2.55% bonus until 31 August 2012. The rate will track base rate from 1 September 2012

This no notice account is operated online and transactions must be made via a nominated account. There is a minimum investment of £1K.

Paying 3.05%, it sits well within the top quartile of similar accounts. A review will be required when the bonus expires, as the rate will drop dramatically and may no longer be competitive.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
