Take control with greater flexibility for your business.


A Business Overdraft from Allied Irish Bank (GB) allows you to go into an overdrawn position up to a pre-agreed limit. So you have peace of mind that extra funds are available outside your normal cash flow, should you need them. It’s versatile and easy to use, allowing you to manage your working capital and prepare for one-off or unexpected spending without having to look for a new credit facility every time.


To apply for a business loan or business overdraft, your company must be incorporated and registered in the UK.
