Item EAR* AER**/Gross Gross Monthly Interest
Credit Balance   0.05% 0.05%
Arranged overdraft 10.05%    
Unarranged overdraft # 25.25%    
Representative Example
The interest rate for using an overdraft limit of £1,200 is 10.05% EAR Variable.

# If you go over your overdraft limit, or if you do not have an arranged overdraft and your current account goes overdrawn, we will charge you interest on the amount of your overdraft which has not been arranged at the rate we set for Unarranged Overdrafts.

* EAR is the Equivalent Annual Rate. If we agree to let you have an overdraft, we will decide your overdraft limit and tell you what it is. Overdrafts are repayable on demand.

** AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest would be if interest was paid and compounded each year.

We will pay your interest Gross, this means that we will not deduct tax automatically from your interest. Dependent on your personal circumstances tax may be due on the interest and it is your responsibility to disclose and pay any tax due directly to HMRC.

Unarranged overdrafts and payments you do not pay when you are meant to are not taken into account for the balance netting calculation.
