If interest is 6%pa paid monthly it will be the deposited amount of say £1000 + 6% = £60.

£60 / 365 x 30 days = £4.93 (using 30 days average)

its paid per year, but wanted to work out how to come to end result, if depositing monthly it isnt going to be 6% on final figure

Try to not let it confuse you. Use the calculator I have just given you and it will show your total investment. Then deduct your initial investment which will leave you with your interest you have earnt in those months. Then divide that figure by how many months you have been saving and this will give you all interest an average monthly rate.

But that won't allow for the interest you earn onthe interest due to compounding

I was trying to work out an average monthly interest. Not interest from the interest. I tried to explain it in such a way that it was clear in my head what I was trying to convey!! Obviously didnt work!

yes it does help, i think why it confused me was the interest they have just had for the last year was obviouslt higher interest than that account is showing as now paying

average rate would come up to approx 3.2638% over a year

eg if you invest 100 a month youd end up with 1200 capital + 39.16569 in interest

is there a saving account that offers such a rate? I opened an account with alliance and leicester last September when it was 6.55%, it has now dropped to 2.5% with all the recent bank rate reductions, this still seems to be about the average going rate for a savings account now.

Most interest is calculated daily
