NAB Personal Overdraft
A NAB Personal Overdraft is a line of credit attached to your everyday NAB bank account.
A NAB Personal Overdraft gives you more money when you need it for everyday purchases and personal investments. An overdraft facility is linked to your NAB transaction account and can give you automatic access to credit to prevent you overdrawing your account.

The NAB Personal Overdraft can be used for everyday personal expenses, it's not restricted for business use.
A NAB Personal Overdraft is an unsecured line of credit.
Interest charged at 12.77% p.a.
If your balance goes into negative (if you withdraw more than what's available in your everyday account), you'll be charged 12.77% p.a. interest. Interest is calculated at the end of each day, so if your balance goes into negative then back into positive within the same day you won't be charged interest.
There are no scheduled monthly repayments. Pay back your overdraft balance when you can.
The minimum overdraft limit is $500.
The maximum overdraft limit is based on NAB's lending criteria. NAB can approve an overdraft limit up to the value of $250,000 or more.
Tiered application fee
Overdraft limits less than $40,000 do not incur an application fee. The application fee increases depending on your approved overdraft limit. For example, a $600 application fee is charged for overdraft limits of $40,001 - $60,000 and $725 application fee applies for an overdraft limit of $60,001 - $80,000.
$35 overdraft line fee
An overdraft line fee is charged every 6 months on the first day of March and September. The line fee increases with the size of the overdraft limit. The minimum line fee is $35, which is charged twice a year regardless of if you us the overdraft feature or not.
