When was the interest paid?
OK. That is the interest for the tax year ended 5 April 2016. Interest is paid without deduction of tax with effect from 6 April 2016, ie for the 2016/17 tax year, not the 2015/16 tax year.
You got £5 net of tax for 12 months, £60 net, £75 gross with £15 tax deducted. That was for the 2015/16 tax year when tax was still deducted at source. The deduction of tax at source stopped on 6 April 2016 so any interest paid to you after 5 April 2016 will not have tax deducted at source so you don't need the R85.
