You can arrange a direct debit for repayments when you apply for the credit card. The table below shows the options available.

Frequently asked questions
What credit limit will I get with the TSB Business Credit Card?
If TSB is able to offer you this deal, the offer will specify a tailored credit limit based on TSB's assessment of your situation and your business. The minimum limit offered on the card is £50, while the maximum is £25,000. Once you've had the card for a while and shown TSB that you're reliable, you may wish to apply for a credit limit increase.
Can I withdraw cash using the TSB Business Credit Card?
Although it's possible, withdrawing cash from a credit card account is generally not a good idea, as "cash-like transactions" (withdrawing cash at an ATM, getting cashback at the till, spending at a casino, buying currency, etc.) often incur steep fees and/or higher rates of interest.
The cash advance fee on the TSB Business Credit Card is 2.5% (min. £2.5). For example, if you withdraw £50, you'll incur a fee of £2.50. Withdraw £250, and you'll incur a fee of £6.25.
The interest rate on this part of your balance will be 17.6%, which is the same as the standard purchases rate (chargeable from the day of the transaction – the card's usual "up to 45 days interest-free" grace period won't apply).
How much does it cost to use the TSB Business Credit Card abroad?
Non-sterling transactions are subject to a 2.95% charge. For example, if you spend 200 euros (£172.65), it'll cost you around £5.09.
What is the minimum payment on the TSB Business Credit Card?
Each month you must pay at least 5% of your balance at that point or £5.00 – whichever of the two figures is greater. So if you had, say, £90.00 outstanding, you'd pay £5.00, and if you had £400.00 outstanding, you'd pay £20.00.
Paying only the minimum required amount each month is generally not advisable as it tends to be a very expensive way to borrow money which can lead to persistent debt.
Can I get additional TSB Business Credit Cards for my team?
Yes, you can request up to 20 more. There's no fee for additional cards.
