Community Account Charging information

Startup Community Organisation

If your not for profit organisation was set up within the last 12 months and has an actual/anticipated annual turnover of £1million or less, you  qualify for our Startup offer of  an initial 18 months Free Banking (subject to status).

At the end of the 18 months, as long as annual credit turnover across accounts doesn't go over £100,000, you will continue to receive Free Banking (subject to status). Our Standard Tariff will apply if your organisation's annual credit turnover, across accounts, is more than £100,000.

'Free banking' means that the charges for the day-to-day running of your account (known in the Business Account Charges information as your 'service charge') will not apply.  Charges for 'additional services' and 'unarranged borrowing' detailed in the Business Account charges information are not part of the free banking offer.

Existing / Switching Community Organisation

We offer free banking, subject to status, to not for profit organisations as long as annual credit turnover across accounts doesn't go over £100,000. Our Standard Tariff will apply if your organisation’s annual credit turnover, across accounts, is more than £100,000.

'Free banking' means that the charges for the day-to-day running of your account (known in the Business Account Charges information as your 'service charge') will not apply.  Charges for 'additional services' and 'unarranged borrowing' detailed in the Business Account charges information are not part of the free banking offer.
