Take control with greater flexibility for your business.

Every business needs access to cash over and above its natural cashflow from time to time. A Business Overdraft allows you to go into an overdrawn position up to a pre-agreed limit. So you have peace of mind that extra funds are available outside your normal cash flow, should you need them. 

All businesses with a current account are eligible to apply for a business overdraft. All applications will be assessed on their own merits. 

To apply for a business loan or business overdraft, your company must be incorporated and registered in the UK.
