At Santander we want to reward our customers, which is why we pay you cashback on your first £10,000 of annual credit turnover if you have this account. Your credit turnover is any money paid into your account, including cash deposits, cheque deposits, electronic payments, Direct Debits and standing orders. It excludes any credit interest we add to the account or any money transferred from other Santander accounts also held in your business’s name. Annual Credit Turnover and cashback will be calculated annually on the same date that the account was originally opened (or transferred to), or the first Working Day after this date. Cashback will be paid into the account on the following Working Day. If the account is closed on or before a cashback payment date in any particular year, then cashback won’t be paid into the account.
|Cashback on first £10,000 of annual credit turnover||Annual credit turnover||Cashback amount|
|1%||Less than £200,000||Up to £100 per year|
|2%||£200,000+||£200 per year|
|3%||£300,000+||£300 per year|
Cashback paid into your business account can be taxable and may be reportable to HM Revenue & Customs. For further information you should contact an independent tax adviser.

We'll automatically send you alerts about your balance and payments in order to help you avoid charges e.g. when you're in an unarranged overdraft, a payment has gone unpaid or you need to pay money in to cover a payment. These alerts are free, and will be sent by text message (or email if we don't have your mobile number).
Once the alerts have been set up, if you don't want to receive or want to change alerts, you can do this in Online Banking or by calling us on 0800 731 6666.

AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and shows what the interest rate would be if we paid interest and added it to your account each year.
Gross rate explained
The gross rate is the interest rate we pay where no income tax has been deducted.
EAR stands for Effective Annual Rate and represents the yearly cost of an overdraft, which takes account of how often we charge interest to the account, and does not include any other fees or charges. Overdrafts depend on your circumstances and you must repay any overdraft when we ask, in line with our General Terms and Conditions.
