If you would like to open a new business account we’re here to help. But this may take up to 4 weeks due to the high number of applications we are receiving.

Government backed lending schemes

Bounce Back Loan Scheme (BBLS)

We are accepting new applications for Bounce Back Loans from existing TSB Business Current Account (BCA) customers only.

If you are applying for a business current account

We are receiving high volumes of business current account applications at the moment, so it’s taking us longer than usual to process them. If you’ve applied recently, we are working through applications as quickly as possible and will be in touch as soon as we can. We are only accepting new applications for Bounce Bank Loans if you already bank with us.

If you are applying for support through the Bounce Bank Loan Scheme

We are only accepting new applications for Bounce Back Loans from existing TSB Business Current Account (BCA) customers. If TSB is not already your main business current account provider, please contact your main bank for support.

You can only receive one Bounce Back Loan for your business. So if you have already applied for a Bounce Back Loan from us or another lender, or have already received a Bounce Back Loan, we are unable to accept your Bounce Back Loan application. If your business is part of a group, only one loan is allowed per group. Two or more businesses under common ownership or control (including by the same individual or group of individuals) are considered to be a group.

See our Bounce Back Loan Scheme page for more information, including the scheme’s eligibility criteria.

Guidance for TSB Personal Banking customers running businesses

We understand that some smaller businesses may have been using their TSB Personal Current Account for business trade. If your business is eligible to apply for a Bounce Back Loan and you’ve been using a TSB Personal Current Account until now, you will need to open a TSB Business Current Account (BCA) before applying for a Bounce Back Loan. When you apply for a BCA we will ask you for your 2018-2019 tax return or additional documents, so please have that ready. You can find out more about our TSB Business Current Account below.

Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS)

To apply for a Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) Overdraft you must already have a TSB Business Current Account (opened before 23 March 2020) to be able to apply.

To find out more, including conditions on these schemes visit our Coronavirus Support page.

If you don’t bank with TSB please speak to your existing bank about the government backed lending support available. Or visit the government’s website to find out about the range of support available for businesses.
