Important legal information

1 Free day-to-day business banking includes electronic payments, cheques, cash, deposits and withdrawals. All we ask is that you operate your account in credit or within agreed limits. Free electronic payments include Direct Debits, Standing Orders, Debit Card transactions, Lloyds Banking Group/Other Bank ATM Withdrawals and Internet Banking/Phonebank Debits/Credit inc. Bulk Payments.

2 If your account balance falls below the required minimum balance at anytime then you’ll pay our standard Business Extra Tariff on all transactions you make during that charging cycle. Our charging cycle runs from the 10th of one month to the 9th of the following month. If the account balance falls below £0, an unauthorised borrowing fee will be charged. We also charge a fee for any items we return to help prevent the account balance from falling below £0, although we will never charge interest on top of this fee.

Eligible deposits with us are protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). We are covered by the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). Please note that due to FSCS and FOS eligibility criteria not all business customers will be covered.
