0.75% rate for Livret A until 2020

New move commencing in February

Interest rates on the popular tax-free ‘Livret A’ savings accounts are to be frozen at 0.75% – their lowest ever – until January 2020. The move, which comes into force in February, means the rate will have been at 0.75% for five years as it was first set in August 2015.

With inflation now 1.1% the Livret rate could have risen to 1% under the normal calculation but this would have been against the run of the market.
A new calculation will be in place by the start of 2020.
