All-In-OneTM line of credit

The interest rate for limit overruns on All-In-OneTM lines of credit has been reduced permanently 

The current situation has led National Bank to implement various measures to help you manage your finances.

On April 6, 2020, we decided to lower the interest rate for exceeding the limit on All-In-One lines of credit.

Good news

We are keeping this measure permanently.

If the credit limit or set sub-limit is exceeded, the applicable interest rate is now the following: 

Previous rate Current rate
Date of change
21%

Two times the variable rate applicable to your line of credit.

Consult your line of credit agreement or monthly statements to find out the variable rate on your line of credit.

April 6, 2020 

Sample calculation of charges

For a $25 overlimit and a variable rate of 3.45%

Annual interest fees until April 5, 2020: $25.00 X 21% = $5.25

Annual interest fees as of April 6, 2020: $25.00 X 6.9% = $1.50 

You can also review the changes by consulting the All-In-One Line of Credit Guide. 

Changes to our banking packages
