Interest charged on the NAB QuickBiz Overdraft

Interest is calculated daily and only on the funds you've used. This is charged on the last banking day of the month.

Making repayments on a NAB QuickBiz Overdraft

As long as your NAB QuickBiz Overdraft remains under the agreed limit there are no minimum repayments.

Residency status information

Business and residential addresses must be in Australia. Unfortunately, we're not able to process this application if you, any additional directors/partners or shareholders (holding 25% or more) have lived overseas in the past three years.

Providing your financial information

For Xero, MYOB and QuickBooks customers, you can login securely to link your financials. You'll need to have MYOB Essentials, MYOB AccountRight (latest version and version 19 desktop based) or MYOB AccountEdge packages. For all other accounting software, you can upload your financial data in PDF within the application. You may also need  to upload your transaction history from your business trading account as a CSV file.

Using your existing business transaction account for your Overdraft application

Eligible NAB business accounts include Business Everyday Account, NAB Business Interest Account, NAB Farm Management Account and NAB Community Fee Saver Account.

Authorised users on the transaction account

For any new business transaction account applications, additional Directors/Partners will automatically become authorised users on the account. Once your NAB QuickBiz Overdraft is approved, you'll be sent an Account Authority Card form. All authorised users are required to sign together, in branch. Any additional signatories on the account can also be added in branch.

The security of your financial information once it's uploaded

Security is very important to us. We respect your personal information and we'll take every reasonable step to protect it.

Customer login details

As your credentials are encrypted and passed to your accounting package software, we don't see your password or store your credentials.

NAB Business Visa Debit card eligibility

All additional requests for NAB Business Visa Debit card will require account owner consent via a Debit Consent form. This can be signed in branch.

Changing the lending amount post approval

If you're conditionally approved, you'll have an opportunity to reduce the amount you apply for before finally submitting the application. However, you will not be able to increase your limit once conditionally approved.

Applying a QuickBiz overdraft to an existing NAB Business Overdraft limit

Increases to existing limits are not possible, but you can apply for an additional overdraft subject to these lending criteria.

Reapplying in the future if you've been declined

You can apply as many times as you like. However, you should know that each time you complete an application you'll undergo a credit reference check; multiple credit checks may adversely impact your credit rating.

Checking your credit history with the credit agencies

Because we're committed to responsible lending, we'll request a credit report of your business entity (and applicant(s)) from the credit reporting agencies. To find out more about credit reporting and credit history checks, visit our Privacy Policy.

Cheque book requests

You'll need to head to a branch to sign the appropriate documentation for a cheque book.
