Leeds BS has launched Issue 2 of its Online Access Account which pays the same market leading rate as its predecessor.

The no notice internet operated account pays a yearly rate of 3.05% on a minimum investment of £100.

The rate includes a bonus of 1.00% until 30.9.10, all transactions must be made via a nominated account and further additions are permitted while the issue remains open.

Clients are advised to review their finances once the bonus period expires, although the underlying rate of 2.05% is currently a competitive one.

Investors who are happy to transact via the internet and are prepared to move their money around if necessary are likely to find this account an attractive proposition.

The Online Access Account has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
