Interest charging information

You will not pay interest on new purchases if you pay your balance in full and on time. Otherwise, the period over which interest is charged is as follows:

  • Purchases: from date transaction is added to the cardholder account until paid in full.
  • Cash withdrawals: from date transaction is added to the cardholder account until paid in full.
  • If you repay your balance in full, you will pay interest on cash withdrawals on consecutive statements. The first statement will cover the period from the date the cash withdrawal is added to the cardholder account to the statement date and the following will show interest payable between the previous statement date and the date of your repayment.
Allocation of payments We use your payments to reduce the amount you owe in the following order:
  1. any overdue amounts from previous statements, then
  2. the remaining balance on your statement; then
  3. any recent transactions not yet shown on your statement.

We use your payments to pay off balances charged at the highest interest rate first and so on down to balances with the lowest interest rates. This means the more expensive balances are always paid off first.

For further details, please refer to your credit card terms and conditions.

Minimum repayment You must pay at least the minimum payment every month of the higher of £5 or the total of:
  • Any interest charged in the statement period;
  • Any Default charges charged in the statement period;
  • 1/12th of the annual fees; and
  • 1% of the balance shown in the Statement.

If your outstanding balance is less than £5, you must pay the full amount you owe.

If you make only the minimum payment each month, it will take you longer and cost you more to clear your balance.
