How the fee for maintaining this account works.

You will pay £15 each month if in the previous calendar month you have:

  • paid in £750 or more,
  • paid out at least 2 different direct debits from the account,
  • remained in credit and not used your arranged overdraft.

At the point the fee is due to be debited you must still have your account open and not have changed it to a different account type.

Any months you don’t meet the above criteria you will pay £17.

Just to let you know, from 1st December 2019 the monthly maintaining the account fee will be £17. The lower monthly fee of £15 will not be available any more.
