Closing the account
- You or we may close your account at any time by giving the other party notice. If we decide to close your account, we will, wherever possible, give you at least 2 months' notice as described in our Business Banking Terms and Conditions and Important Information, unless there are exceptional circumstances, such as fraud. You can close your account by calling the Business Banking Centre on 0800 731 6666.
- Interest payments will be calculated using the gross rate. This means all the interest we pay you will be without tax deducted. For sole traders and individual partnerships, if the total amount of interest you receive exceeds any Personal Savings Allowance to which you're entitled, you may have to pay tax at the applicable rate. This would need to be paid directly to HM Revenue & Customs. For more information, please visit gov.uk and search for 'Personal Savings Allowance'.
