• Business accounts for start ups

    We understand how daunting starting your own business can be, that's why we'll give you 18 months free day-to-day banking (see what's included below) so you can spend less time worrying about your banking and more time building your business.

  • Reasons to choose our Start Up Account for your business

    • 18 months' free day-to-day banking
    • Choose the tariff you move on to that suits your business
    • Manage your account online, by phone or at one of our 631 high street branches
    • Get support with everything from deposits to loans from your relationship manager

  • Account features

  • Free day-to-day banking can make all the difference to a new business. It makes sure that every single penny you earn goes towards creating a successful business.


    • Banking on your doorstep - we have a large branch network in the UK, so there should always be one nearby.
    • Banking on your computer - our Internet Banking service is currently used by over half of our business customers.
    • Banking on your mobile - receive daily updates on your account balance via our Text alerts service.
    • Banking on your phone - speak to a business advisor who can deal with your account queries and requests using our Internet Banking demo service.

    During the first 18 months you will not be charged for:

    • paying in or taking out cash
    • paying in or issuing cheques
    • paying standing orders and direct debits
    • unlimited deposits and withdrawals
    • no minimum account balance required

    All we ask is that you operate your account within agreed limits, for example not going overdrawn without prior agreement.

    Once your free banking period ends, you have the option of moving to one of our alternative tariffs. Which one is best for your business will depend on the number and type of transactions you typically do.

    Fixed Fee Account

    Simply pay a fixed monthly fee for a certain number of transactions - with five levels to choose from to suit your needs. And if those needs change, you can simply change your plan.

    Business Extra Tariff

    Pay individual charges per transaction instead of a fixed monthly fee. This tariff is suitable for customers who use large cash transactions.

    Electronic Business Tariff

    If you use electronic or automated ways of banking you can benefit from lower charges for those types of transactions. You pay per transaction and not a fixed monthly fee.

    Minimum balance of £1 applies.
