Banking at hours that suit your business

We’ve paused applications for our Business Bank Account

We’re getting a huge amount of interest in our Business Bank Account at the moment.

To make sure our services keep running smoothly, and so we can meet our commitments to our existing customers, we’ve temporarily stopped taking any new applications online or in store.

We’re planning to start accepting applications again early next year.

If you applied online before 8am on Friday 9 October, or you already have an appointment booked in store to make an application, you can carry on as normal.

Click here if you’re eligible for the RBS Incentivised Business Switching Scheme and wish to open an account – we can still accept these applications.

Independent service quality survey results

As part of a regulatory requirement, an independent survey was conducted to ask approximately 1200 customers of each of the 14 largest business current account providers if they would recommend their provider to other small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs*). The results represent the view of customers who took part in the survey.
