expenses, particularly to see you through cash flow problems. Many Businesses use an overdraft for there working capital, helping them buy stock, pay staff, etc, in order for their business to function.

Also, there could be additional charges if you exceed your overdraft limit and the bank has the right to ask for repayment for the amount you are borrowing at any time. It is important for businesses to monitor spending carefully and not to exceed their limit as it would result in them paying much more then they initially borrowed.
