What it means for business
Brexit - supporting you through the transition
Our number one priority is to serve and support our customers.
The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020 and entered a transition period, which is due to end on 31 December 2020.
There should be no change to your banking services during the transition.
You can find out more by taking a look at the information on this webpage and our helpful customer guides.

Beware of fraudsters
Criminals are taking advantage of the potential confusion around the UK leaving the EU to defraud businesses.
These criminals are posing as HMRC to get businesses to part with their money.
- If you’re a UK based business, they’ll claim you need to register for a ‘UK trader number’ if you trade with EU countries.
- If you’re an EU national living in the UK, they may claim you owe additional tax.
Remember that HMRC will never ask you for payment or personal details by email or text. If in doubt, call HMRC on a trusted telephone number.
We’ll never contact you out of the blue to ask for your personal information or ask you to move money to a safe account.
