  1. Both a B Current and B Instant Savings account must be opened at the same time and both held to take full advantage of all the features of the accounts and the B app. You’ll also need a compatible smartphone or tablet to take advantage of all the tools.
  2. Arranged overdraft (subject to status) is when you have arranged an overdraft limit with us on your current account, allowing you to continue to make payments up to the value of your limit. A Monthly Arranged Overdraft Fee is applied each month you use arranged overdraft greater than the value of the Arranged Overdraft Buffer Amount. B Current gives you two working days each month to reduce your arranged overdraft to below the buffer (£25) before you're charged the Monthly Arranged Overdraft Fee.
  3. Unarranged overdraft happens when you exceed the amount available in your account (including any arranged overdraft); a Daily Unarranged Overdraft Fee is applied on each business day that you are in an unarranged overdraft which is greater than the value of the your Unarranged Overdraft Buffer Amount. B Current gives 2 working days grace to bring your unarranged overdraft to less than the buffer amount (£10) before the fee is charged.
  4. The grace period gives you two business days to bring your arranged and unarranged overdraft to less than the buffer amount before the fee is charged. You qualify for another grace period when you reduce your unarranged overdraft to less than than the buffer amount.
  5. A Refusing A Payment Due to Lack of Funds Fee will be charged when there is not enough money in your account or arranged overdraft to make a payment and we refuse the request. We will not charge this fee if the value of the payment that is refused is £15.00 or less. This is the Refusing A Payment Due to Lack of Funds Fee Buffer Amount.
  6. The fee cap means that you'll never pay more than the cap value per calendar month in Monthly Arranged Overdraft, Daily Unarranged Overdraft and Refusing A Payment Due to Lack of Funds Fees. The cap does not apply to debit interest. We have a Monthly Cap on Unarranged Overdraft Charges. This means you'll never pay more than the cap per month in Daily Unarranged, Overdraft and/or Refusing A Payment Due to Lack of Funds Fees. 1. Each current account will set a Monthly Maximum Charge for: (a) going overdrawn when you do not have an arranged overdraft; or (b) going over/past your arranged overdraft limit (if you have one). 2. This cap covers any: (a) interest and fees for going over/past your arranged overdraft limit; (b) fees for each payment your bank allows despite lack of funds; and (c) fees for each payment your bank refuses due to lack of funds.
