EAR stands for equivalent annual rate. It is the rate you would pay if you go overdrawn to the full limit of your facility for the entire year. It takes into account the interest rate you are charged as a result and how often it’s charged – in this case interest is calculated daily and charged monthly. It then takes into account the effect of compounding – charging interest on interest – on your debt. Charges for unarranged overdrafts are charged separately.

1The representative EAR is an illustration of the rate that the majority of customers will receive. If an overdraft is described as having a particular representative EAR, then we expect to offer that rate or better to at least 51% of the applicants we accept. Other customers may get a different rate based on their individual circumstances. Our representative EAR applies to all unsecured overdrafts with a borrowing amount of up to £25,000 for businesses with a turnover from £3 million of up to £25 million. This figure is not necessarily the rate you will be receiving and is for illustrative purposes only.

Tell us about your business’s plans and needs. We will then agree on an interest rate and let you know if we require any security. We’ll discuss the terms with you before any overdraft is taken out.

  • To apply for our Business Overdraft, you should:

    • Require the overdraft for business use.
    • Be a sole trader, partner or director with authority to borrow on behalf of your business.
    • Be aged 18 or over.
  • For any borrowing which is unarranged, the Unauthorised Borrowing Interest (UBI) rate is 26.4%.

    The first time you go overdrawn, without an agreed overdraft facility, or exceed your agreed limit with us by £50 or more, you may be charged an Unauthorised Borrowing Fee of £15. After that, the UBF is applied every time you increase your unauthorised borrowing by £50 or more from the previous day’s closing balance, unless a higher limit is agreed with us or until the account is within its existing limit or in credit.

    Where you do not have enough money available to make a payment and we do not agree to extend an unauthorised overdraft, you will not be able to make that payment. We charge a £25 fee each time we have to return a payment.

ANY PROPERTY GIVEN AS SECURITY, WHICH MAY INCLUDE YOUR HOME, MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE OR OTHER DEBTS SECURED ON IT.

All lending is subject to a satisfactory credit assessment and we will need your permission to carry out a credit check on you and your business.
