Overdraft details

How do overdrafts work?

An arranged overdraft can be useful for short term borrowing. Understand arranged and unarranged overdrafts and their impact on your account. An overdraft is a form of borrowing and is repayable on demand.

There are two different types of overdraft:

 

  • An arranged overdraft, which allows you to go overdrawn up to an agreed limit. This is the type of overdraft you could apply for here. During your application for an arranged overdraft, we'll run a full credit check to determine how much we can offer you.
  • An unarranged overdraft. This is when you spend more money than you have in your current account without already having an arranged overdraft, or when you exceed your current arranged overdraft limit.

We charge interest on both types of overdraft. Going in to an unarranged overdraft limit can lead to payments being rejected.

 

More on Overdrafts

How much does my overdraft cost in pounds and pence?

Understand the cost and impact of overdrafts and whether you're eligible to apply for one. If you don't repay what is owed, you could harm your credit score and borrowing capability.



This account offers an Overdraft facility (subject to eligibility). You can check if you're likely to be accepted for an overdraft using our eligibility tool

 

As an example, the interest cost of using a £500 arranged overdraft is: 

 

Time Period   |   7 days  |  30 days |  60 days |

Interest Cost |   £3.24    |  £13.87  |   £28.13   |

 

This is a specific illustrative example representing the interest cost of using a £500 arranged overdraft over periods of 7, 30 and 60 days.

 

Looking to understand the costs of an overdraft of more or less than £500 over different periods of time? Use our handy cost calculator.


If you don't pay it back, it could have an impact on your credit score.

 

Representative Example: Effective Annual Rate: 39.49% EAR (variable). Representative APR: 39.49% APR (variable). Assumed credit limit: £1,200.
