To ensure our account is a good fit for your organisation, please take into consideration that we do not offer a debit or credit card on any of our business accounts, nor do we have standard services to access cash. You will have internet banking access to make payments and a chequebook if required.
We’ll ask you a few questions about what you do and how your organisation is set up. Depending on the account you're applying for, we may need to know your:
- First year 's expected deposits
- Details of international payments in and out of the account
- Business structure
Calls usually take no more than 10-20 minutes.
Complete an application form
After our call, we'll send you a follow-up email with a link to the online application form. You can also request a paper application form if you prefer, but this may extend the processing time.
We'll assess your application
We take a genuinely responsible approach to business, transparency and using money more consciously.
That’s why we assess organisations applying for our accounts to make sure their practices don't conflict with our ethos.
If you're unsure whether your organisation would fit with our values, give us a call.
You can also check our minimum standards - it lists the non-sustainable products, services and working practices that would exclude an organisation from banking with us.
We'll set up your account
If your application is successful, we’ll set up your account and send you a welcome pack.
Yes - as well as creating ad hoc UK payments you can import a file containing a batch of payments. Normally you will create this file in your accounting software.
Under the Account Management tab in Internet Banking, the Import Payments page allows you to select a file for import by browsing any of the drives accessible to your computer. Once you have selected the file, you need to authorise the import using your Digipass.
You will need to ensure that your file conforms to one of the file formats below. These files are usually produced in your accounting software.
- Import file specification - batch payment format
- Import file specification - BACS format (agency transactions)
If you’re not sure how to create an import file in either of these formats, please contact your accounting software support provider.
You can see a history of imported files, including status, in your internet banking under the Account Information tab, on the page Imported Files History.
