Setting up an overdraft for your business gives you financial flexibility and support when it matters.Log on and enquire
A Business Overdraft acts like a short-term safety net for your business finances. In business, it's normal for cash flow to change with different situations – some of which may be out of your control. An overdraft on your business account is an extra line of credit that gives you an interim cash flow solution, should you need it.
Benefits of a Business Overdraft
Overdrafts can be useful in helping to cover unexpected costs or large outgoings when the money flowing into your business isn't there to support them at that moment. An arranged overdraft differs from a loan in that you can repay it and use it again . You can pay back an overdraft as and when you're able to, but fees may apply. You may also be able to increase your overdraft limit depending on your business needs.
To get a Business Overdraft, you’ll need to have a Lloyds Bank Business Current Account. It’s always a good idea to check eligibility criteria first.
No, you’ll have to apply for a Business Overdraft as an existing Business Current Account holder.
No, you will only be charged interest on the amount you borrow, regardless of your total borrowing limit. However, if you exceed this limit then unauthorised borrowing charges will apply. Fees for Business Overdrafts over £5,000 will be calculated on the full overdraft limit.
