What you need to know
The Cashplus overdraft is your regular short-term safety net – borrow up to £2,000 when you need an extra helping hand. Just pay off as much as you can, as soon as you can, and you’ll reduce how much you pay in interest.
If you’re an existing Cashplus customer, we’ll let you know as soon as you’re eligible for one of our Bank Account Extras via email, Online banking message or SMS.
Apply for your overdraft
Once you’re eligible, it’s as simple as a few taps in the app or Online Banking to add it to your account. Your eligible products will display on your Account Overview screen, or you can visit the Bank Account Extras section.
You can use our overdraft calculator to see the cost of using your overdraft in pounds and pence, which will help you compare the cost to other ways of borrowing.

Your business back up
Whether it’s a tight month for cash flow or you just need a little something extra for the office, we’ve got you covered. Borrow up to £2,000 in the short term to help with any unexpected payments or purchase new equipment.
Just so you know
The first £5 of your overdraft is free to use. We’ll charge you interest on any daily overdraft balance greater than £5. You can find information about your interest rate in your monthly statements.
You will only be able to make payments from your Cashplus account if you stay within your credit limit. Payment attempts which would take you over your overdraft limit will be refused.
It’s important you make at least the minimum payment on time, as paying late or missing a payment can hurt your credit rating. The fastest and cheapest way to clear your balance is to pay it off in full each month. Visit our FAQs page to find out more or contact us.
You’ll be automatically enrolled to receive overdraft alerts which will help you manage your overdraft and avoid charges. We’ll send you an alert to your registered mobile device if you’re about to enter your overdraft, have entered it, or are approaching your limit. You can control these alerts in the app or Online Banking.
Cashplus overdrafts are only available to existing customers who have had their Cashplus Account open for a minimum of three months. We'll let you know when you're eligible for an overdraft by sending you an email, or through notifications in our App and Online Banking.
If you want to see how likely you are to be approved for a Cashplus overdraft, you can use our eligibility checker and this won't impact your credit file.
Using our eligibility checker doesn’t guarantee you’ll get an overdraft with us, and you won't be able to make an application for an overdraft afterwards as we only make them available by invitation.
Once you've received an offer from us, simply log into the Cashplus banking app or Online banking, navigate to the overdraft screen (within Add-ons or from the tile on your Account Overview) and follow the steps to complete your application. You'll need to read and accept your Credit Agreement and Terms & Conditions.
Once you've successfully signed up, your overdraft will normally be added onto your account within a few hours, but if we receive your completed application after 4pm on a Friday or over the weekend, it will be available from midday on the next business day.
We'll tell you the interest rate, APR and credit limit for your overdraft when we invite you to apply. A good way to compare the cost with other ways of borrowing is to look at the APR - this shows the cost of borrowing over a year.
