What is the Bank of England Bank Rate?
The Bank of England Bank Rate is the official Bank Rate set by the Bank of England which can affect interest rates offered by Banks, Building Societies and other financial institutions. By changing the official Bank Rate, the Bank of England seeks to influence overall borrowing in the economy.
The interest rate on a Base Rate Loan will fluctuate in line with changes to the Bank of England Bank Rate – the rate of interest may increase or decrease over the committed term of the loan and this will affect the total repayment amount.
The current Bank of England Bank Rate is 0.75% (effective from 2 August 2018).
If you have a have a base rate loan or mortgage, the interest rate we apply will always move in line with the changes to the Bank of England Bank Rate.
