You can make a withdrawal by contacting our office on 0330 175 5555 or by setting up internet banking with Transave and making the withdrawal online. If you request a withdrawal before 1PM the funds will normally reach your designated bank account on the same working day. If you make the request after 1PM it will be the next working day.

Depending on Transave’s financial performance you will receive an annual dividend on the total amount saved into your account during the financial year (October to September). This is usually paid in March each year.

When a payment into Transave is received from a member we will allocate funds in the following order of preference:

  1. Interest owed on any outstanding loan
  2. Any loan repayment due on outstanding loan (Principal)
  3. Members own shares account(s)
  4. ‘other’ distributions and transfers requested by the member (e.g. family member accounts, etc.)

If the payment total received is insufficient to cover all of the above allocations, we will pay all the required amounts in full and in the order given above, until all the funds are used (i.e. no ‘part-payments’).
