Approval for any credit card will depend on your status. The representative APRs shown represent the interest rate offered to most successful applicants. Depending on your personal circumstances the APR you're offered may be higher, or you may not be offered credit at all. Fees and rates are subject to change without notice. It's always wise to check the terms of any deal before you borrow.
You can make manual repayments through Yorkshire Bank's app, by logging in to your online banking or over the phone (0800 032 3971). Alternatively, you may wish to set up a direct debit.
A direct debit protects you from forgetting to make a repayment and either damaging your credit score, getting hit with a penalty fee (£12) or losing any promotional rates as a result.
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 Yorkshire Bank Business credit card?
If Yorkshire Bank is able to offer you this deal, the offer will specify a tailored credit limit based on Yorkshire Bank's assessment of your situation and your business. The minimum limit offered on this card is £500 and Yorkshire Bank does not specify a maximum. Once you've had the card for a while and shown Yorkshire Bank that you're reliable, you may wish to apply for a credit limit increase.
Can I withdraw cash using the Yorkshire Bank Business credit card?
Although it's possible, withdrawing cash from a credit card account is generally not a good idea, as "cash-like transactions" (such as withdrawing cash at an ATM, getting cashback at the till, spending at a casino or buying currency) often incur steep fees and/or higher rates of interest.
The cash advance fee on the Yorkshire Bank Business credit card is 3% (min. £3). For example, if you withdraw £50, you'll incur a fee of £3.00. Withdraw £250, and you'll incur a fee of £7.50.
The interest rate on this part of your balance will be 27.9% (chargeable from the day of the transaction – the card's usual "up to 59 days interest-free" grace period won't apply).
How much does it cost to use the Yorkshire Bank Business credit card abroad?
Non-sterling transactions are subject to a 2.95% charge. For example, if you spend 200 euros (£170.33), it'll cost you around £5.02 in fees.
Can I get additional Yorkshire Bank Business credit cards for my team?
Yes. Yorkshire Bank doesn't specify a maximum number of cards you can request. Each card comes with an additional account fee of £28.
