What sort of bank account do I need?

With our Standard account, you need to have a business bank account set-up. Even sole traders that use their personal / current accounts must provide a business account.

With our adult and high risk merchant accounts, if you are a sole trader or single share holder and wish to use a non business account it must state own name t/a company name i.e. Fred Bloggs t/a ABC Industries

Bank accounts can be located anywhere in the World, however they must be in the correct company name and not a parent or subsidiary company. Please note that all remittances paid to a bank account outside of the UK (including GBP payments) may incur a Wire Transfer Fee.

Struggling to find a bank that will provide an account for your business?

Please note that we do not have any sort of relationship with them and do not endorse, recommend, or make representations.
