Opening a Start up Business Current Account – Important Information

For clients with an annual turnover below £3m. We are currently receiving a high number of Business Current Account applications, so it may take us longer than usual to open your account. After we receive all required information, your account should be open within 4 weeks.

Please note, new customers cannot open a Business Current Account to access the Bounce Back Loan Scheme. To access the Bounce Back Loan Scheme, you must have had an account with us before 2 March 2020.

Continue with my application

If you manage your business through a Personal Current Account opened before 2 March and want to apply for a Bounce Back Loan, do not apply via this page. You will need to open a Business Current Account or a Loan Servicing Account.

Switching business accounts

We’ve taken the difficult decision to temporarily stop accepting business account applications from customers looking to switch their banking to us.

This is undoubtedly going to cause a level of inconvenience, but please be reassured that we’ll reinstate the ability to accept new account applications for switching at the earliest opportunity. Thank you for your understanding at this time.
