Business Alerts | NatWest


Our free Business Alerts service informs you by text or email about business account activity, including balance updates and important changes to your details.

It’s our way of helping you stay in control of your finances, so you can minimise overdraft charges and keep your account secure.

The alerts service is free. However, your mobile network service provider may charge you for receiving a text message from your mobile phone and sometimes higher charges may apply if you are abroad. Please check your mobile network operator’s tariff for receiving text messages.
