Unsecured Business Overdraft
What is a Business Overdraft?
A business overdraft is a line credit for a specified amount to cover transactions on your regular banking transaction account if your account balance drops below zero.
If for example, you are approved for $50,000, you can overdraw your account up to that amount. It’s a line of credit in your account - and you only pay interest on the overdraft amount you use.
With an unsecured business overdraft, you don’t need to secure the overdraft against any assets, such as a building or equipment. Watch our video to learn more.

Credit criteria, fees, charges, terms and conditions apply. Talk to your banker for product details.
* For existing eligible Westpac customers.
1. 1.20% p.a. Line Fee charged monthly on the overdraft limit. For example: Based on a $10,000 limit and 31 days in a month: (1.20% of $10,000)/365 x31 days = $10.19 per month
2. When borrowing money, in most cases your lender will ask you to secure the loan using some form of asset that you or the borrower may own. This security is intended to cover the borrowed amount in the event you are unable to pay it back. Unsecured loans do not need security over an asset that you may own.
