Important information

This calculator assumes the level of overdraft is constant for each overdrawn day and doesn’t include any fee free periods that may apply. The actual cost of an arranged overdraft could be lower.

Our overdrafts are only open to those aged 18 or over and are subject to approval.  The costs shown only apply to an arranged overdraft. If you exceed your arranged overdraft limit then additional fees will apply. See rates and fees for further details.

*To be eligible for the 3 month interest-free overdraft on our FlexAccount, all we ask is that you switch to us using the Current Account Switch Team to switch your existing Direct Debits and standing orders when you open your new account.

What is EAR?

EAR stands for ‘Equivalent Annual Rate' which allows you to compare the rates offered by different providers. It's the cost of an overdraft stated as a yearly rate, taking into account the compounding rate of interest. We work out interest each day on any overdrawn amount and take it from your account monthly, giving you 28 days' notice of the amount. Any interest charged is added to the balance outstanding.
