Business bank account

To start trading, you’ll need a business bank account. Create your company with us and you’ll nab 12 months of free banking, plus £50 cashback.

Your Barclays start-up business account

Your new business will need its own bank account which will work a bit differently than a personal account. One thing you’ll notice are the charges. There’s usually a monthly fee as well as small charges for making and receiving payments. If you set up your company with us, you can get a Barclays business bank account with no charges for the first year and a bunch of other great benefits.

Frequently asked questions

Who can open a Barclays start-up business account?

You can set up an account as long as it’s for your business. You’ll need to be a sole trader, partner or director, and aged over 18. You’ll get free banking for 12 months if you set up your company through LegalZoom.

What happens at the end of my first year?

At the end of your first free 12 months, you’ll have two options. The Mixed Payments Plan is great for businesses that use cash and cheques, while the e-Payments Plan is for businesses that are paid electronically and mainly make payments using online banking and debit cards.

What percentage of my charges will I get back with the loyalty reward scheme?

That depends on two things: how long you’ve banked with Barclays and your annual credit turnover. That’s the amount paid into your business account over the previous 12 months. If it’s less than £100,000, and you’ve banked with Barclays for less than five years, you’ll get 5% of your charges back. The longer you stay with Barclays, the higher the percentage you get back.
