What is a Business Overdraft?

It’s a flexible short-term lending option for businesses. A Business Overdraft works as a safety net for unexpected expenses, where you may not have sufficient balance when awaiting payments from customers. With our overdraft, you only pay interest on what you borrow, without a minimum requirement for your repayments.

Overdraft in detail

Flexible monthly payments

An overdraft is a useful safety net. You can reduce your Business Overdraft by as much or as little as you want each month, with no set minimum pay back each month.

Borrow up to £50k unsecured (subject to credit approval)

If you have an RM contact them about your borrowing needs. If you don't have an RM and wish to borrow up to £50k you can apply online, if you wish to borrow more please contact us.

Boost cashflow and only pay interest on what you borrow

A Business Overdraft is a useful safety net. If you need a quick cash injection or help when an unexpected cost comes along, an overdraft is there if you need it. If you don't use your Business Overdraft facility, you don't pay any interest. Simple as that.

  • Interest on your account is calculated daily, based on your end of day balance and rate and charged to your account quarterly.
  • Representative EAR (Effective Annual Rate) is used for comparison purposes and shows the annual interest rate we reasonably expect at least 51% of customers who are accepted for and enter into the overdraft agreement to get. It is calculated by using the rate of interest charged if you remained overdrawn for a year, the frequency with which interest is charged, and the effect of compound interest on your debt. The Representative EAR does not include other fees or charges
