Royal Financial of Scotland Overdrafts Important Information

An Arranged Overdraft is a form of debt and is repayable on demand. Always make sure you have enough money in your current account, or a suitable Arranged Overdraft limit in place, before any payments are due to come out of your account. 

If you don't have the available funds for payments leaving your current account, they may be returned unpaid. If this happens there is an Unpaid Transaction Fee of £6 charged for each transaction we reject (Subject to a maximum of £60 per charging period). 

Unarranged Overdrafts:

We recommend you avoid going in to an Unarranged Overdraft. This occurs when you spend more than you have in your current account without an Arranged Overdraft, or, where you go over your Arranged Overdraft limit.

If you enter an Unarranged Overdraft by more than £10, you will incur an Unarranged Overdraft Usage Fee of £6 for each day you remain in this position (Subject to a maximum of £90 per charging period).
