Electronic Business Tariff

With our Electronic Business Tariff you'll be charged per transaction. If you regularly make transactions electronically – at ATMs, through internet banking or using automated payment tools like Faster Payments – the Electronic Business Tariff could work for you.

As long as you maintain a credit balance of £1 or more, this tariff ensures you pay less for these types of transactions. Otherwise, you might want to consider our Business Extra TariffBusiness Extra Tariff.

Read through the tables below to see how you will be charged under our Electronic Business Tariff. Keep in mind that our charging cycle runs from the 10th of the month to the 9th of the following month. Credit interest is not paid as standard on our Electronic Business Tariff.

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.
