We are committed to ensuring that you receive the best possible banking experience with Unity Trust Bank. As part of this commitment we have changed the providers of our payment processing services which includes: online payments, direct debits, standing orders, cheques, foreign payments, counter services and bullion.
NatWest is our new provider for these services, they are the market leader in providing payment services to other banks and financial institutions and were the best fit to suit the needs of the Bank and our customers.
Our new sort code, 60-83-01 is now live. Please start using your new cheque and paying in books provided which quote the new sort code and securely destroy any old stationery which quotes the old sort code 08-60-01.
Q When is the change happening?
A: We are now live with the new sort code which is 60-83-01.
Q What services are affected by this?
A: It is business as usual, you can continue to use our services as normal. The only exception relates to depositing cheques at The Post Office®, as previously advised this service is no longer available.

Q: I receive Foreign Payments into my account – is there anything I need to do?
