What is the Bank of England base rate?
This is the official interest rate set by the Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee. The base rate is reviewed throughout the year and can fluctuate.

How to use our base rate change calculator
To use our calculator, you’ll need to enter your remaining balance, the number of years and months left on your mortgage, and your current total interest rate (including the base rate).
You’ll then need to enter a new total interest rate (including the base rate) to see how a different interest rate could change your monthly payments.
Your mortgage information can be found on your annual statement, or by logging onto online banking.
The information provided by this calculator is a guide and should be used for indicative purposes only.
All tracker rates are subject to a 0% floor. This floor means that, no matter how far the Bank of England base rate is reduced, the interest rate on a tracker mortgage will never be a negative figure.
