Business overdraft

All businesses have ups and downs — an overdraft provides a buffer for your business, giving you access to extra funds when you need them, with no fixed repayments.

Hitting reset on variable business overdraft rates

It’s been a tough few months for New Zealand business and New Zealanders, and there’s still a long way to go in our recovery. That’s why we’ve reset our variable priced business loans and overdraft rates by reducing them by 1.00% p.a. This means you'll now have all the flexibility of a variable rate at a significantly lower cost than ever before.
