Temporary overdraft support

If you continue to be or reasonably expect to be affected financially by the Covid-19 pandemic and you're experiencing a reduction in your income and/or an increase in your outgoings, you can apply for temporary arranged overdraft support on your account(s) for three months. To do this please complete the overdraft support form. You can apply for support until 31 October 2020.

If the overdraft support is applied, we temporarily won't charge interest on the first £500 of arranged overdraft borrowing. Normally we charge interest on arranged overdraft borrowing over £250. Additionally, we'll temporarily charge 19.9% EAR (variable) for any arranged overdraft balances above £500. The normal rate of interest for overdraft borrowing is 39.9% EAR (variable). Once the 3 months completes the standard 39.9% EAR (variable) will then be charged for any arranged overdraft balances above £250.

Representative example: 0% EAR variable on the first £250, 39.9% EAR variable on anything above that, giving a representative rate of 30.5% APR variable (assumed arranged overdraft £1,200).

How does our overdraft compare?

You can compare our overdrafts with other ways of borrowing by looking at the Annual Percentage Rate (APR). APR is the cost of borrowing over a year and lets you compare the costs with other credit products.

These are temporary measures and do not change the account and overdraft contractual terms and conditions, which remain the same.

No interest-free amount applies to Additional Accounts.

Which means that, if you pay in the maximum monthly contribution of £250 on the same date each month, for 12 months, you could earn gross interest of around £44.69. Partial withdrawals not permitted. Interest is paid at the end of the 12 month term. If you save less than £250 in any given month, you can carry over any unused allowance to the following months. Monthly Saver interest is calculated daily and credited annually at the end of the 12 month term. Rate is subject to change.
