How To Open A Business Bank Account In 15 Minutes?


I remember trying to open my first business bank account.

It was a joke.

I had to go into the bank branch, queue up only to put my name on a list for a scruffy guy called Alex to call me 4 days later and tell me his earliest appointment was in 3 weeks.

Yep an absolute joke.

When you’re starting a business you don’t want to wait 3/4 weeks until you make your first sale.

You want to get going!

Starting a business is hard enough without having to fight to open a bank account.

The great thing is, now that’s all changed!

It’s crazy, you can open a new business account in less than 15 minutes on your phone, whilst sitting on the toilet.

This is why I love the new business banking apps. All you need is:

  • Your ID
  • Company Number if your a limited company
  • Your office address

A few clicks and one awkward selfie verification later (off the toilet) and you’ve got the new business bank account that you need.
