  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. Planned borrowing (subject to status) is when you have agreed an overdraft limit with us on your current account, allowing you to continue to make payments up to the value of your agreed overdraft limit. A monthly planned usage fee is applied each month you use planned borrowing greater than the value of the planned borrowing buffer amount. B Current gives you two working days each month to reduce your borrowing to below the buffer (£25) before you're charged the monthly planned usage fee.
  3. Unplanned borrowing happens when you exceed the amount available in your account (including any agreed overdraft); a daily unplanned borrowing fee is applied on each business day that you are in an unplanned position which is greater than the value of the your unplanned borrowing buffer amount. B Current gives 2 working days grace to bring your unplanned borrowing to less than the buffer amount (£10) before the fee is charged.
  4. The grace period gives you two business days to bring your Planned and Unplanned Borrowing to less than the buffer amount before the fee is charged. You qualify for another grace period when you reduce your Unplanned Borrowing to less than than the buffer amount.
  5. A returned item fee will be charged when there is not enough money in your account or agreed overdraft to make a payment and we refuse the request. We will not charge the returned item fee if the value of the unpaid item is £15.00 or less. This is the returned item fee buffer amount.
  6. The fee cap means that you'll never pay more than the cap value per calendar month in monthly planned usage, daily unplanned borrowing and returned item fees. The cap does not apply to debit interest. We have a monthly cap on unplanned borrowing charges. This means you'll never pay more than the cap per month in Daily Unplanned Borrowing and/or Returned Item Fees. The banking industry definition of monthly cap on unarranged overdraft charges is set out below. Where you see the terms 'arranged overdraft' or 'unarranged overdraft', those have the same meaning as 'planned borrowing' and 'unplanned borrowing' as explained in your account terms and conditions and tariff. 1. Each current account will set a monthly maximum charge for: (a) going overdrawn when you have not arranged an 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.
