Coronavirus update – Opening a Business Account

To make sure our services are running smoothly and keep waiting times to a minimum, you will need an in-store appointment to discuss opening a new business account with us.

We recently introduced an online request form, but so that we can process the extremely high number of appointment requests we’ve already received, we have had to temporarily remove the form.  

As soon as we’re ready, we’ll announce that the form is available again. Thank you for bearing with us.

You can make an appointment request at any of our stores - Please see here for our opening hours. If you do visit us, please follow social distancing guidelines to protect yourselves and our colleagues. 

If you want to apply for one of our Bounce Back Loans, you will need to have a Business Account with us.

Business and commercial banking

We believe in offering all our business customers an expert and personal level of service. From sole traders to international corporates, our Local Business and Relationship managers will get to know your needs.

We’re delighted to say we have received £70 million from BCR Ltd as part of the RBS Alternative Remedies Package Capability and Innovation Fund. This money will help us bring the banking revolution to more small-to-medium businesses across the UK.
