We are transparent

Nobody can provide a completely free banking service. We prefer honesty and clarity.

There's no such thing as completely free banking, and we don't pretend otherwise. Some banks use unplanned overdrafts and other complex legal waffle that a lot of us might not understand, which means it isn't actually “free” at all. It's dishonest and misleading.

We prefer honesty. We don't have overdrafts and all our fees can be seen below. Whenever a fee is payable, we will flag this up very clearly.
