Why we're asking you to consider switching to another bank
In 2008 and 2009 we received financial support from the UK Government. As a result, we made a commitment to help increase competition in UK business banking and reduce our market share.
We originally planned to do this by setting up a new bank – Williams & Glyn – which you were due to move to, but that’s no longer going ahead. Instead, the Business Banking Switch proposal was approved by the European Commission in 2017.
The kind of offers you can expect
A fund has been set up to allow participating banks to offer deals and rewards to eligible customers to switch their business current accounts. The scheme has been designed to provide customers with offers which are better than those normally available on the market.
Once you enter your account details, you’ll be able to see the offers your business may be eligible for. Browse them on the Offers page.
How to pick your offers
Browse your offers on this website
Have your account number and sort code ready, so we can display your relevant offers from the participating banks. The website is a secure environment and your data is protected. You will never be asked for your PIN or Password as part of this process.
Submit your interest on this website
Once you’ve picked a shortlist of offers, according to what’s important to you and your business, you can submit your interest to those banks.
Apply to your chosen banks
Once you’ve submitted your interest, we’ll let you know your next steps. Some participating banks may have an online process, whereas others may have a team to guide you through the switch.
Switch with the Current Account Switch Service to simplify the switching process
For most customers, the switch will be managed by the Current Account Switch Service which makes switching bank accounts quick and simple. They’ll transfer your balance, Direct Debits and standing orders to your new account.
