Barclays Business Bank Account

Barclays Business Bank Account

Business bank accounts with cash back

Through our arrangement with Barclays, Blue Sky Formations offer a company formation and a fast-track business bank account service. This means that, as well as completing the formation of your new company, we will also help you apply for a business bank account.

Barclays Business Bank account

It's a legal requirement for a trading company to have a business bank account. We offer limited companies a referral to Barclays for the Barclays Business Bank account. As a Blue Sky Formation client, you'll have access to the following from Barclays:

  • 12 months free banking
  • At the end of your free banking you will have a choice of 2 straightforward price plans
  • Loyalty bonus – reduced charges the longer you bank with Barclays
  • The ability to manage your account online, by phone, via the Barclays Mobile Banking app1 or in branch
  • Get paid instantly with Barclays Pingit2
  • Support and guidance from the Business Banking telephone team

The Barclays Business Bank account is subject to normal bank credit and money laundering checks and referral through our scheme does not guarantee acceptance.

If you are not a resident in the UK, we cannot offer you a bank account under this scheme.

Additional Services

  • Barclays offers expert advice and guidance to all of our business customers, whether you're just starting out or setting up a further business
  • As well as phone access to their dedicated Business Team, you'll also be able to work with one of their local Business Managers whenever you need extra support to grow your business
  • Barclays clinics and interactive workshops are designed to help you learn valuable skills, network with other business owners and make your business even more successful
  • Nationwide clinics are free and will help you focus on the things that matter most to your business, such as cashflow, lending and international (there's a small booking fee for workshops and some partnership events)

Service Guarantee

Barclays Business Banking telephone team aims to resolve every query straight away. If your query can’t be settled there and then, you’ll be given a named point of contact who will take personal responsibility for looking into the query and making sure you’re kept informed until it’s resolved.

How it works

  • As soon as your company is incorporated, your details will be sent via a secure link to Barclays
