Update Your Account

It’s important that you keep your account details up to date.

If you need to make changes to your account, click on ‘Update Details’ below. Using this online service, you can:

  • Inform us of a change to your organisation’s name, registered address and legal status*
  • Update your key contact details
  • Add, update and remove signatories, Internet Banking users, Directors or Trustees from your account
  • Update signatory or internet user’s personal details
  • Register individuals for Internet Banking and change Internet Banking access levels
  • Change statement preferences or account permissions

To enable us to change your bank account organisation name, it will need to be changed and registered with your business’s registering body (Companies House, Charities Commission or FCA) first. Without it we won’t be able to process your request.

If your unincorporated organisation becomes an incorporated company you are required to open new account/s for the new entity unless it is a SCIO (Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation).

*Legal status refers to your organisation’s legal structure – ie whether it is a PLC, CIO, Cooperative.
