I am posting in all bank forums on a guide that I asked initially for help on the Bank Workers section. I hope to get a guide together on each bank forum on the charges and their changes over the last 6 years. So can you help me to help the Moderators and site helpers on the site with an easy access guide to penalty charges. I need to know amounts and charge over the last 6 years.

 

This thread is a research thread so I can collate all the charges into one single thread to help newbies and this site to calculate their charges as quickly as possible.

 

Thanks in Advance for your help

I have to say having just done mine the A&L charges are very confusing when you get back to 2004 and before. It seems to be £25 monthly OD charge and £29.50 failed cheque on mine before June 2004 and as above thereafter.


Alliance and Leicester: started 2/9/6, LBA 7/11/06.

I will look up my A&L charges for you. Should make good reading for a bank worker!

Where does the term 'penalty charge' come from? Are they meant as a punishment meted out to those who, for whatever reason, do not keep their accounts in order? I thought the banks argument was that these charges cover administration costs'. Why, then, penalty?

Will, this thread started when I really thought I could do for most banks what I had done for NatWest, which is make sure that people claimed correctly and won all the time. I am not an expert on A&L and Caro kindly put this as a stickie, which i am grateful for. If you have info on other banks please feel free to post on other banks threads. If you look under the quick reply box you will see threads on other banks that I tried and unfortunately failed to do but feel free to post on those one, I am always grateful that someone has both the info and inclination to post on all of them. I hope that explains it.

The unauthorised and authorised rates are the same, the specific rate to use varies depending on the type of account you have whether current, flexi-plan, etc..

 

In the case of a current account, these were the monthly & EAR rates for Alliance & Leicester from before the time they took over Giro Bank till present. I know in the case of keyway accts or similar named the rates were much higher than current account rates

 

UNAUTH/AUTH OVERDRAFT INTEREST RATES APPLIED VALUE EAR

MONTHLY INTEREST RATE (NOV 1989 - AUG 1990) 2.00% 26.75%

MONTHLY INTEREST RATE (SEP 1990 - JUL 1991) 2.50% 34.50%

MONTHLY INTEREST RATE (AUG 1991 - MAY 1993) 2.30% 31.30%

MONTHLY INTEREST RATE (JUN 1993 - SEP 2001) 2.20% 29.80%

MONTHLY INTEREST RATE (OCT 2001 - NOV 2002) 0.99% 12.50%

MONTHLY INTEREST RATE (DEC 2002 - DEC 2004) 1.25% 16.08%

MONTHLY INTEREST RATE (JAN 2005 - FEB 2007) 1.33% 17.08%

 

I hope this helps, if going for the contractual interest rates it would be sensible depending on how far back you claim for charges goes, to use the rates at the time when these charges were applied. A useful site that can help with such calculations roughly is Geek Hideout --> Compound Interest Calculator.

All you need to do is calculate on a per charge basis with the varying rates over the number of years the particular charge was applied (note the monthly addition should always be zero).

Then comparatively work the number of months for the charge on one rate and then find what its sub-total comes too for those months.

Then hop onto the next column (which is at a different rate) and locate the sub-total (in paragraph above) in the column. Once found use it as your starting point and again calculate the number of months on this rate, you will end up having a newer higher total. You can continue this for each of your charges.

Note it is rather laborious process and not for eveerybody, but it does make a huge difference for those seeking to pursue the contractual interest rate method (especially if you have charges that pre-date 2000). :smile:
