Account Overdraft


A corporate account overdraft is a capital-raising arrangement offered by BOCOM and executed according to an agreement with its customer, to provide an overdraft of a designated amount to the customer, in addition to the balance in the latter’s settlement account, in order to make up for emergency cash shortages in the course of the customer’s normal business operations.

Salient features

(1)   Upon signing an agreement with BOCOM, customers can execute an overdraft anytime and pay back the overdraft amount anytime during the designated period, saving them the constant hassles of credit application and loan repayment.

(2)   Generate savings on corporate financial overheads and facilitate corporate finance management;

(3)   Make up for emergency cash shortages in the course of the company’s normal business activities.

Amount, term, interest rate and interest

(1)   Maximum extent of overdraft period does not exceed 1 year, starting from the day the overdraft agreement takes effect. Overdraft can be made on revolving basis during the effective period;

(2)   Overdraft term is the period during which successive overdrafts are executed by the customer, without making any repayment. Generally, this occurs within ten days and the maximum length of the term cannot exceed 3 months;

(3)   Overdraft interest rate is generally the same as one-year RMB loan interest rate (inclusive of floating rates) executed by the People’s Bank of China;

(4)   Calculation of overdraft interest is based on the daily accumulated amount. Calculation of such amount is based on the maximum amount of overdraft balance registered on the day of calculation.
