Treasurers’ Account

We give you free day-to-day banking* when you’re in credit.

Our Treasurer's account is for small, non-profit making organisations with a turnover below £50,000**. We'll give you free day-to-day banking when you're in credit and our Business Management Team to support you. That way you can spend less time on administration and more time on raising funds and looking after your members or clients.

*Free day-to-day business banking includes cheques, standing orders, cash, UK Sterling Direct Debits, deposits and withdrawals. All we ask is that you operate your account in credit or within agreed limits and don't go overdrawn without agreeing it with us first. See our Rates and Charges page for information on the charges that apply to CHAPS transfers.

** Account turnover is defined as the debit and / or credit turnover on a current account. This is expected to be less than £50,000 per year and the organisation is not likely to require borrowing facilities.

If the Account Turnover on your Treasurers' Account, or the total Account Turnover where you have more than one Treasurers' Account, exceeds £50,000 you will cease to be eligible for the Treasurers' Account. Your Treasurers' Account(s) will cease to be designated Treasurers' Account(s) and these Terms and Conditions will cease to apply. The account(s) will be subject to the General Terms and Conditions only and the Business Current Account will be applied to the account(s). We will give you 2 months’ prior written notice of any such change.
