Applying for a Triodos Bank business and charity account
Before you apply you will need to call us so we can find out more about your organisation and discuss if banking with Triodos Bank is suitable. We will need to ask you about your organisation’s:
- turnover and financial projections
- registered company and/or charity number (if applicable)
- the people connected to your organisation
- reasons for choosing Triodos Bank
It is important that all of the information for your organisation is correct as per any official records. Incorrect information may result in your enquiry or application being rejected.
Please ensure you have all of the information detailed above to hand so that you can complete your enquiry in one call.
Triodos Bank's criteria for business banking customers
We carefully assess organisations applying for our accounts. We may not be able to progress an enquiry if we feel an organisation's practices conflict with our ethos, or the operation of the account may not be financially viable for either party. For current account applications your business must have an expected turnover of more than £5,000. In addition, we reserve the right to not provide accounts to financial advisors and political parties.
Our approach to lending lists the non-sustainable products, services and working practices that would exclude an organisation from banking with us.
Additional account information
If you are interested in applying for a current account please ensure you have carefully read the tariff of charges before contacting us, and that these are acceptable to your business in view of your expected account usage. Please also note there is no debit or credit card available and there is no standard way to access cash from these accounts. Only enquire if the facilities we offer are suitable for your business needs.
If you have read all of the information and feel that your organisation fits with our ethos and you would like to apply, please gather the information detailed above and call us during our opening hours.
We look forward to speaking to you.
