What are EAR and APR?
EAR stands for effective annual rate. This is equivalent to the rate of interest you'll pay if you're overdrawn for a year. You'll pay interest on the amount you're overdrawn by, and on the interest that builds up from being overdrawn. So you'll pay less if you regularly pay off your overdraft. EAR doesn’t include other fees, like hidden or late fees – but we don’t charge these anyway.
APR stands for annual percentage rate. It is calculated in the same way as the EAR plus any additional fees (like hidden or late fees) but we don’t charge these anyway so our EAR and APR are the same.
Representative APR You may see two types of interest, representative and personal. Representative APR is the rate that we currently offer more than half of those who apply for the product. The rate you’re actually offered is your personal APR – this is usually based on things like your credit score.
Variable means we have the right to change the rate, but we’ll always give you notice if we do.
You can use the calculator below to figure out how much you would pay depending on your personal rate.
