Plate spinning, juggling, putting out fires; it’s fair to say that life as a sole trader can be a bit of a balancing act.
So whether you’re self-employed or happily side-hustling, we’ve built an award-winning sole trader account to save you time and money while you run the show – and (here’s the best part) it’s free.
Apply for an account in minutes and connect with your accounting software or invest in a Sole Trader Toolkit to tackle the numbers directly from your bank account, on desktop or mobile.
Please note, to open an account as a sole trader, customers must first open a personal current account and meet certain eligibility checks, which include looking at credit data. If eligible, you will see the option in your app to apply in minutes for a sole trader account.
Unfortunately we are unable to let customers know whether they will be eligible for a sole trader account prior to opening a personal current account because we use the personal account opening process to verify your details and eligibility.
When applying for the account we will need evidence of trading activity, and the sole trader can’t engage in any of the prohibited activities set out in the sole trader current account terms.
