Frequently asked questions

What do I need to open a Business Bank Account?

Just pop into your local Metro Bank store with a few documents. For the full list of what to bring, read our handy guide to opening a Metro Bank Business Account.

Is it easy to switch everything over from my current business account?

Yes, we switch everything over for you. We can switch Direct Debits and standing orders in 7 days, subject to terms and conditions.

Any payments to your old business bank account will automatically reroute to your Metro Bank Business Bank Account for 3 years (36 months). We’ll also let the sender know your new details. 

With this option your old business account will be permanently closed. If this doesn’t sound right for you, talk to us about a partial switch instead.

Do you offer specialist services in specific industries?

Yes. We have specialist teams in a range of sectors, including financial services, hospitality and leisure, property, and charities and not-for-profits.
