Warning signs of money problems

Anyone can find themselves in a difficult situation. It’s very common to feel isolated and alone when worried about money.  

Signs of money problems affecting you include:

  • Living beyond your means
  • Overusing credit
  • Struggling to pay debt or credit
  • Financial avoidance (e.g. ignoring repayment finances)
  • Being contacted by debt or credit collectors
  • Signing documents you do not comprehend


Signs of money problems affecting business include:

  • Cashflow in the red without a valid reason
  • Paying suppliers late or missing payments altogether
  • Less cash flow coming in or a shrinking list of orders
  • Needing to find new sources of funding for the business
  • Employees leaving or change in management structure
  • Not submitting financial accounts on time
  • Late or missed loan repayments
  • Frequent and increasing borrowing of funds


  • We can help. Please call our Credit Management Team directly to discuss the ways we can help you manage your repayments and reduce your debt. 

    Credit freeze

    A credit freeze places a temporary block on your account during which you won’t be charged any interest or fees, and no payment is required. You won’t be able to use your card for new purchases during this period, but it does mean your balance won’t get any bigger.

    Payment deferral

    Allows you to pause your minimum payments for a month at a time, up to a maximum of 3 months, and you’ll still be able to use your card. It’s important to note, however, that interest and fees will continue to be charged to your account, which may mean future minimum payments are higher (and as a result, it may cost more and take longer to pay off your balance in the long term).

  • Relying on your overdraft to cover costs could mean you're spending more on interest than you need to be. 

    Use our overdraft calculator to see the cost of using your overdraft, and compare the cost to other ways of borrowing. 

    More about overdraft repeat use.

  • Using your overdraft or credit card consistently to borrow money can be expensive and may lead to financial difficulties. If you're concerned about making your repayments on time or have received communications from us about overdraft repeat use or credit card persistent debt, we can help.
