Business savers are benefiting from increased competition in the market, with Redwood Bank increasing rates on both its one year business bond and 95-day business savings account.

Its 1 Year Business Savings Bond (Issue 2) now pays 2.00% on a £10,000 deposit and takes second place in the chart for its term. This account allows further additions within 14 days of account opening, but withdrawals are not permitted. While the 95 Day Business Savings Account (Issue 4) takes the top spot for its term paying 1.75%, again on a deposit of £10,000. It allows further additions, via a nominated account, and withdrawals subject to 95 days’ notice. Both these accounts can be managed by post, online and by phone.

Currently, the highest rate being offered in the business savings account chart is from Cambridge & Counties Bank paying 2.50% on its 5 Year Business, Trust and Charity Bond Issue 5.

Masthaven Bank rounds off the top three with its 5 Year Fixed Term Bond paying 2.35% on a £5,000 deposit. This five year fixed rate bond allows further additions for seven days from account opening but withdrawals are not permitted. It is an online-only account.
