Halifax current accounts and services are offered subject to status. Whether you can have an overdraft and the amount will depend upon your personal circumstances at the time you apply for one. Any overdraft we agree is repayable on demand. If you’re opening an account and you switch your main current account to Halifax, we’ll give you an overdraft with no daily fees, subject to status, for the first six months. After this time, the daily fee structure will apply based on the account you’ve chosen.
