Understanding your bank account charges

How our digital fees work

We charge for digital and automated payments made via Online, Mobile or Telephone Banking as well as Direct Debits and Standing Orders.

And our fees for handling cash

Cash and cheque handling fees in branch are always more expensive than their digital counterparts. 

* You’re charged £0.70 per £100 in addition to £0.70 manual fee per item so if your cash transaction is for £150, you'll be charged £1.75 in total. 

** The manual transaction fee is not applied for cheque deposits made via the Mobile App and/or payments in via Cash and Deposit Machine.

Our credit cards

It can be cheaper to pay with a credit card, if you plan ahead. When you use your business debit card, you’ll be charged 0.35p (on Standard Tariff) for each transaction. But, with a business credit card there’s no transaction fees for sterling purchases. You’ll be charged an annual card fee and interest on anything you borrow. So depending on how many transactions you make and interest you owe, you could reduce your bank charges.
