"It was easy! All I had to do was go through the quick application process and then I was granted my business overdraft in no time at all. I kept thinking it couldn’t be this easy and was expecting a call asking for additional documentation, but it never happened."

A line fee is charged monthly based on the total limit. The monthly charge is calculated using the line fee annual percentage rate, total limit and number of days to arrive at the monthly amount. For example if the line fee is 1.50%, the total limit of the facility $10,000, and the month has 31 days, the monthly line fee is calculated as: (1.50% of $10,000)/365x31 days = $12.73 per month.
