We currently offer many of you an interest-free overdraft buffer of £25. To help with the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on your finances, from 26 March 2020 until further notice, we won't charge interest on the first £300 of overdraft borrowing for Bank Account, Bank Account Pay Monthly, Current Account and Advance Bank Account. This is a temporary measure and not a change to contractual terms, which remain the same. We’ll keep this under review and we’ll update customers before we make any changes to the interest waiver.

If you have an account with a negotiated rate (where we have separately agreed a non-standard rate for your overdraft), this will not apply to you.

2. APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is the rate at which someone who is borrowing money is charged, calculated over a period of 12 months. It takes into account not just the interest, but also any other charges that may have to be paid and any interest-free amount. Back to our current accounts
