Barclays Bank Business Bank Account

Receive 12 months free business banking*

Business Tax Centre has partnered with Barclays Bank to offer a simple company formation and express business bank account service. As well as completing the formation of your new company, we will also help you to apply for a business bank account: an essential service for any new company registration.

It makes sense to have a business bank account with your new limited company as you will not be able to pay in cheques made out to a limited company into a personal account.

Barclays are a great choice for your new business bank account for your new company because they can offer everything you would expect from an established high street bank:

  • a business debit card
  • cheque book
  • online and telephone banking
  • free banking for a period of time*
  • many more benefits (see below)

By selecting Barclays during your new company formation on our website, you can save time and effort, and focus on getting your new company up and running.

How does it work?

As soon as your company is incorporated and accepted by Companies House (usually within 24 hours, often much sooner), your details will be sent via a secure link to Barclays. A member of Barclays new registrations team will then contact you within 48 hours to arrange an initial account opening meeting with your dedicated Business Manager.

What makes Barclays a great bank?

As well as the key benefits listed above, Barclays also offers a lot more than the basics, and that's why we recommend Barclays to all our new business clients. Barclays Business Bank customers also benefit from:

  • Free business banking for 12 months*
  • After 12 months you have a choice of 2 straightforward Price Plans
  • Thanks to the Loyalty Reward programme, the longer you stay with Barclays, the more of account charges you get back
  • Receive support and guidance from your Business Banking telephone team with our Service Guarantee (see below)
  • Manage your account online, by phone, via the Barclays Mobile Banking app or in branch

Service Guarantee

The Barclays Business Banking telephone team aims to resolve every query immediately. If this is not possible, Barclays will give you a named point of contact who’ll take personal responsibility for resolving your query. You will be kept fully informed throughout the process.
