Bringing in the right documents can smooth out the account opening process.
Everyone involved in opening the business account will need to provide proof of identity and proof of address, including:
A valid passport, EU national ID card or UK driving licence is ideal, and may be all we need.
Must have your name and current address on it. We only accept originals. It’s handy to have 2 of these with you, just in case.
You can open this account if you’re a UK-based business or commercial customer.
We believe in letting you decide how you want to bank with us – whether that’s online, in store, over the phone, through your Relationship Manager or on the move with our app.
