Additional Information

Additional Information


This account is for Metro Bank Business Bank AccountCommercial Current Account or Client Premium Deposit Account customers who need to hold clients’ money in a bank account.

It’s typically used by solicitors and accountants, but other businesses that hold client money can benefit too.

If you want to deposit client funds for a shorter time, you may want to consider our Client Premium Deposit Account.

Closing your account early

You can close your account whenever you like, whichever term you choose.

If you close your account early, the interest rate will be adjusted to 0.10% AER from the time the account was opened.

For example, if you open an account with a term of 9 months and close it at 4 months, you’ll get 0.10% AER not 0.45% AER for the time the money was in the account.

Deposit terms

You can’t access your money during the term, but if you think you may need access to your money during this period, please consider the Metro Bank Community Instant Access Deposit Account. 

Interest and funds on maturity will be paid into your nominated Metro Bank account. 

Your account and tax

Since 06 April 2016, interest on deposits has been paid without tax being deducted. For more information, please contact the Business team on 0345 08 08 508.
