    cutoff time?

    Hi there.


    You have a checking account. There's an overdraft and make the balance negative. If you transfer some funds into the checking account then the bank will not charge you some extra fees. But only if you make the transfer before a specific time, for instance 9 p.m.

    What do you call it? Do you call it cutoff time?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: cutoff time?

    I'm trying to answer the question on my own.

    "Transfers scheduled on bank business days before the daily cut-off time will be credited on the same day. Transfers scheduled after the cut-off time will be credited on the following business day."

    The answer to the question I left is the daily cut-off time of a bank.
    So that you can ask the teller, "what's your daily cut-off time"? and they will tell you their latest time.

    It could certainly be called that, Nefertiti and you've done a spectacular job of answering your own question.

    Often when we're relating a situation like this, a potentially hypothethical situation, or not, we often use the following introductions;

    Imagine/Say/Let's say/Pretend there's a situation where you have a checking account. There's an overdraft, ...
