Hassle free banking with your Business Debit card

Your Business Debit card is great for day-to-day purchases. It’s designed for you regardless of the size of your business and can help cut down on the administration involved in reconciling cash and personal card expenses. That way it’s easier to keep track of all your business expenditure.

Find out about the great benefits of Business Debit cards below.

Withdrawing cash

Withdraw cash free of charge


You can withdraw cash free of charge at any cash machine where you see the Visa sign. Other companies may charge a fee. The daily limit for cash machine withdrawals is £1,500.


If you want to withdraw more than £1,500, you can visit one of our branches. Your card can be used at any NatWest or Royal Bank of Scotland branch teller for cash withdrawals up to the available funds in the account. Cash can also be withdrawn at Post Office counters up to a maximum of £500 per day.



Need emergency cash?


If your card is lost or stolen, we'll give you a code to withdraw up to £300 of your money from any NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland or Ulster Bank cash machine in the UK or Ireland.


Withdraw up to £300 if you are an internet or telephone banking customer, or up to £60 if you're not. You'll need to have enough money in your account and a minimum of £25 available in your account.



Find your local branch


Use the branch locator to find your local branch. The branch locator tool gives you information on opening times, branch facilities, and if required, directions from your current location.

Safe, simple banking

Contactless payments


All our standard Business Debit cards come with contactless technology, allowing you to make a secure payment in less than a second.


You can buy anything up to a value of £30 by touching your card on a reader, anywhere you see the contactless symbol.




Secure payments


All your payments, including contactless, are processed using the same Visa payment technology we use to process chip and PIN payments.


You may occasionally be asked to enter your PIN as an extra precaution to protect your account. Contactless cards also use advanced security features that are independently approved by the payment card industry.


You can also register for NatWest Secure and benefit from additional security when you use your Business Debit card to pay for goods online.

Using your card overseas

Buying goods abroad


Any transaction made in a foreign currency using your Business Debit card is converted by us into Sterling using the Visa Payment Scheme Exchange Rate. To see the up-to-date rates used for Business Debit cards visit and click on the Cardholders section. 


Whenever you make a purchase we’ll charge you a 2.75% Foreign Purchase Fee.
