Hi Edison. I haven't quite got as far as tackling my business accounts yet, but if HSBC are the same as Lloyds, the charges I think you are talking about are the monthly 'normal' charges eg for paying in cheques, having direct debits, cashing cheques etc, and therefore not applicable for reclaiming. On the occasions we went over our agreed overdraft limit, we were charged a fee (eg £12.50 per day!!) and those can be reclaimed.


Not 100% sure about the interest charged - I think I am right in saying that if you had an arranged business overdraft, the interest would also not be able to be reclaimed. However, if you went overdrawn or over the overdraft limit because of the penalty charges, and were charged extra interest, this is reclaimable as contractural interest.

Someone with 'the knowledge' will be along to confirm or correct me on this.


Have a really good read of the link posted above - it's really good advice.


Good luck with your claim :)
