Electronic account payments

You can apply for an electronic account payment limit from your branch. The limit should be equal to the average number of cash and cheque deposits or withdrawals on your account. Where the limit you ask us for is more than your monthly turnover, information such as projected cash flow must support your application. Any application to load or increase limits must be signed by the account holder.
