The overdraft facility for your personal success curve
- Greater financial freedom:
With a credit limit of up to EUR 50,000.00 and an unlimited term,** you can finance unexpected expenses and spontaneous wishes. You can stay faithful to your regular bank. Your BusinessLine offers you additional freedom. It is good to have a financial reserve which you can fall back on at any time.
- Great flexibility:
You repay only 3% per month (at least EUR 50.00) of the sum withdrawn, incl. interest, but you can pay back more at any time. If you settle your BusinessLine you incur no costs. You can draw on your BusinessLine within your credit limit as often as you wish. It's simple and flexible!
- Free service:
There are no account management fees. Your monthly statements are provided free of charge in your online banking PostBox or by post if required (subject to postage fee).
- Low interest rate:
You pay only 6.95%* p.a. debit interest for the first three months after opening the account – thereafter only 10.95%* p.a. debit interest. These interest rates are clearly below the market interest rate for overdrafts normally offered to you as a self-employed or freelance client. Compare our conditions with those of your regular bank: at just 2% difference, you save EUR 300.00 per year (based on a utilised credit of EUR 15,000.00).
