We'll calculate arranged overdraft interest daily on the cleared end of day debit balance on your account, and deduct it from your account monthly.

Before we deduct any arranged overdraft interest, we'll give you at least 14 days' notice of the amount.

If you live in Northern Ireland and you've switched your banking to us you won't be charged arranged overdraft interest on the entire debit balance of your 1st Account for the first three months, unless your 1st Account is linked to your Offset Mortgage.

*EAR is the Effective Annual Rate which takes account of the interest rate and how often interest is charged, but doesn't include any other fees or charges.
