Contractor banking: open an account today

If you have decided to trade using a limited company then you will need a separate account for your business in order to accept payments from agencies and clients, and also to pay business expenses incurred as a contractor.

Traditionally contractors have approached their personal branch to open a business bank account. However, this can be very time consuming, often taking weeks to get set up, which you may not have before starting your first contract. High street banks don't really understand the world of contracting. Your banking needs as a contractor are actually much simpler than most businesses require.

Fortunately, those time consuming hassles are now a thing of the past, with new low cost financial solutions designed specifically for contractors.
