Business Banking

More than just a bank account

Our business bank accounts are designed to simplify everyday banking and make managing your money easier – even from home. Plus, our business banking experts are on hand to help.

We know the coronavirus situation is a worry right now, and we’re committed to supporting you and your business through this difficult time.

We’re receiving lots of business current account applications at the moment, so it’s taking us up to six weeks to process them. With that in mind, please only apply if it can’t wait, so we can focus on the businesses that need us most.

Thanks for your patience and understanding while we try to help everyone as quickly as possible.

Guidance for personal customers running businesses

Whilst personal current accounts should not be used for business purposes, we understand that a number of smaller businesses may have been using their personal accounts for business trade. If your business qualifies for a Bounce Back Loan and you’ve been using a personal account until now, you can find out more about our Barclays Business current accounts here. Alternatively, you can call the New Customer Team on 0800 515 46231 to discuss creating a business relationship.

There are a range of other high street banks who are also offering the BBLS to business customers.
