Kick-start your new business with Moneyfacts’ Business Start-Up Bank of the Year. When you become a Barclays Business Banking customer, you’ll get access to business expertise and useful tools to help you get your business off to the best start.

Free banking for your first year

Get your business off the ground with free banking for the first 12 months1. Afterwards, your account will switch to one of two price plans that best reflects how you make and receive payments. Thus the longer you stay with Barclays, the more of your bank charges you’ll get back, with their monthly Loyalty Reward. The Business Current Account Price Plan Charges document has more information about their Loyalty Reward.

Save time and hassle

Let Barclays contact you – after your company incorporation process, we’ll send them your contact details securely. Barclays will then contact you within one working day, to arrange the next steps for opening your business bank account.

Small, regionally-aligned teams who understand your business are ready to act when you’re planning the next steps – such as trading abroad, managing cash flow, or borrowing to fund growth.
