Micro-SME Overdraft Customers – Information and Assistance

We have begun communicating with Micro-SME customers with Overdraft facilities and all customers will shortly have received at least two letters about their account closure date. These customers will also lose access to their overdraft facility beyond this closure date and will need to repay their overdraft balance.


In these letters we have made customers aware of a streamlined application portal with Permanent TSB if they wish to apply for a new overdraft facility with Permanent TSB. Each customer has been provided with a unique ID code to help them with this application process if they wish to use it. Customers are free to choose a provider of their choice and do not have to apply to PTSB for a replacement current account or overdraft.


Any customer that needs extra assistance with replacing their overdraft facility or with any concerns about their ability to otherwise repay their overdrawn balance should call us immediately on 0818 211 690 or 0044 2890 538 459 if calling from abroad (8.30am – 5.30pm Mon-Fri).
