Charities, Club & Society Current Accounts
For charities with an annual turnover of less than £500,000, we offer you FREE banking if the account is operated in credit and there are no more than 25 entries on average per month, and cash handled does not exceed £1000 per week.
For charities with an annual turnover of more than £500,000 we will review usage and likely transaction costs with you to agree an appropriate tariff.
For organisations such as Clubs, Trusts or Societies we will look to review the charges based on the turnover, transactions and credit, offering the inital first 6 months with FREE banking.
Those customers that maintain a credit balance averaging £5,000 or more during the charging period may qualify for a discount against the overall charges.

Setting up and running a charity is a significant responsibility and does involve a lot of work. For this reason, it is important to consider whether there may be other ways how you could achieve your charitable aims aside from setting up a new organisation. There is guidance from the Charity Commission whom can explain the alternatives and give you guidance on the documentation required before you apply for a bank account, and look to register as a charity.
Be wary of advertising your bank details on your website for collection of donations. If you need an account to collect funds for your club , society or charity ask your bank to open a separate account to your main banking. Remember fraudsters are always looking for bank account details to use.
