    Savings account fees - tax deductible? 3rd Jan 18 at 9:40 PM
    Hello
    Quick question, trying to work out correct interest figure for SA tax return on a Santander 123 savings account.
    Each month there is gross interest and cashback coming in, and an account fee going out.
    Am I allowed to deduct the monthly account fee from the interest?
    Does the cashback count as interest?

    Apologies if this had been asked previously, I did a search but nothing came up.
    Thank you!

    Thanks - didn't think the account fee would be deductible, heh ho.
    So, do I just put in the gross interest, and ignore the cashback?
    Thank you.

    cashback based on spending isn't taxable as per:

    Indecision is the key to flexibility.
