What would the estimated balance be after 48 months based on a £1000 deposit?Assuming that £1,000 is deposited into the account at the time it is opened and no deposits or withdrawals are made then based on an interest rate of 1.30% you will receive a monthly interest payment of £1.08 on the last working day of each month.  As per the terms and conditions of the product, the monthly interest payment of £1.08 must be paid away and cannot be paid into the account therefore the overall account balance at the end of the term will be £1,000.
