Additional Information

Interest will be paid gross.

Gross rate interest is the interest payable without taking account of any tax payable.

AER (Annual Equivalent Rate). The Annual Equivalent Rate illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year.

An Arranged or Unarranged Overdraft is a way to borrow money from the bank and is intended for occasional use. Here's a quick overview of how they work:

Arranged Overdraft

This is a borrowing limit on your account that we agree with you in advance, so it's there when you need it. You'll pay Arranged Overdraft interest on the amount you choose to use.

Unarranged Overdraft

This is where you borrow from us when there is no money left in your account (or when you have gone past your Arranged Overdraft limit) and this has not been agreed with us in advance. You will pay Unarranged Overdraft interest.

If you don't have enough money in your account to cover a payment, we may charge a Refusing A Payment Due To Lack Of Funds Fee. You should aim to repay your overdraft borrowing as quickly as possible and use it responsibly as your usage will be reflected in your credit file.

Will you get an arranged overdraft?

Use our eligibility calculator and find out. It won’t leave a mark on your credit file.
