Electronic Business Tariff

Day-to-day banking

This page gives you details of our day-to-day banking charges for the Electronic Business Tariff.

If you use electronic or automated ways of banking then you may prefer our Electronic Business Tariff, which includes lower cost charges for those types of transactions if a credit balance of £1+ is maintained.

We will write to you 2 months before your free business banking period ends, asking whether you want to be placed on the tariff you chose when you opened your account or a Fixed Fee Account. Our Fixed Fee Account plans give you a maximum number of transactions each month for a fixed fee. This makes it easier for you to budget for your day to day banking, putting you in control of your account charges.

Alternatively, you may choose to move onto the Business Extra Tariff where instead of a fixed monthly fee, you will pay individual charges per transaction.

Our charging cycle runs from the 10th of one month to the 9th of the following month.

Unauthorised borrowings

Transaction Type Charges
Unauthorised Borrowing Fee £15.00
Unpaid Item £35 for each item not paid

Unauthorised Borrowing Fee – The first time you overdraw your account or exceed your agreed limit with us by £50 or more, an Unauthorised Borrowing Fee (UBF) is chargeable. After that, the UBF is chargeable every time you increase your unauthorised borrowing by £50 or more from the previous day's closing balance unless a higher limit is agreed with us or until the account is within its existing limit or in credit.

Unpaid item – We charge each time we have to return a cheque unpaid or there is insufficient money in your account to pay a standing order* or Direct Debit.

* For standing orders, where, on the date that such a payment is due to be made there is not enough money in your account to make that payment, we will attempt to complete the payment again in the afternoon of the same day and also make an additional retry attempt the following morning (“the retry period”). You will only be charged if all three tries are unsuccessful, and this will be charged after the final try has failed. We’ll contact you every time we return an item unpaid. Any unauthorised borrowing or return item charges will be accrued into one lump sum and charged on a monthly basis.

**this includes the use of debit cards to withdraw cash over branch counters.
