We share our profits with all of our members each year. Subject to the terms and conditions of your account you’ll receive your dividend annually, each December, based on the performance of the credit union in the previous year. The dividend rate is decided and agreed by our members at our Annual General Meeting, based on recommendations from our Board.

ISA savings rates for 2016/17
ISA accounts receive a return paid annually in April each year. ISA rates of return can vary from month to month throughout the year and we will update this page with the dividend rate to be paid each month.
The ISA return paid at the end of the 2016/17 tax year was calculated at the following historical rates.
April 2016 until July 2016
August 2016 until April 2017
We are no longer taking new subscriptions for our ISA account but members who already have an ISA subscription can contribute up to £13,500 in the tax year 2017/18. Remember, the maximum you can deposit with the credit union across all accounts in any financial year is a total of £7,500 lump sum deposits, plus a maximum £500 regular payments each month (totalling £13,500). A member’s collective savings balance is not permitted to exceed £75,000.

Please be aware that the longer you take to pay back a loan, the more you will pay back in interest. If you go for a shorter term your monthly repayment might go up, but you'll save in interest and pay back your loan faster.
