Opening your business account couldn’t be more simple ..

Following registration of your company, your details will be sent to Barclays via a secure link
Barclays will call you, usually within 48 hours, to arrange a welcome meeting at a time and branch to suit you, and will advise you as to what ID you need to bring along
