Overdrafts are available on this account, but you’ll need to apply first. We’ll then check your financial status before making a decision.
If your account balance and agreed overdraft aren’t enough to cover a payment, we may give you an unarranged overdraft. Unarranged overdrafts have a typical interest rate of 25% EAR (variable).
Interest will be calculated daily on your account and applied monthly. The amount of interest payable and when it will be charged will be shown on your monthly statement.
We may also make other charges:
Cheques normally take 5 working days to process. If you’d like to know how quickly you can withdraw your funds after a cheque has been paid into your account you can take a look at our cheque clearance guide.
Important: Cheques will begin to be processed as soon as they are received by a bank, which could be on the same day as it’s written. Please ensure you have enough money in your account to cover all your payments, including cheques, to avoid becoming overdrawn.
We won’t charge you for international debit card transactions made in most European countries. And we offer outstanding value rates in the rest of the world.

Usually, the cheque will clear on the fourth working day after you pay it in. (Yes, we’re open every day, but just pretend working days are Monday to Friday!) If you pay a cheque in on Monday, you can use the money on Friday. Pay it in on Tuesday and you can use the money the following Monday – and so on.
If the bank the cheque is from uses extra security measures, it will take a little longer. International cheques can take 6-8 weeks to clear.
