Important information

1. Overdrafts are subject to status and application so the amount offered may be different to that shown on the example. All borrowing is repayable on demand. The fees shown here are variable, which means we can change them – although we will let you know before we do this.

2. The Lending Code. Barclays Bank PLC subscribes to the Lending Code which is monitored and enforced by the Lending Standards Board. The Lending Code sets minimum standards of good practice when dealing with certain customers in the UK in relation to loans, current account overdrafts, charge cards and credit cards.
