Important information

All rates and charges are subject to change and we may decide when to apply and waive any account charges.

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.

1 If we make a change to these charges we'll notify you 7 days in advance if the change is to your disadvantage. If the change is to your advantage we may make it immediately.
