Don’t feel that your account is right for you anymore? Take a look at our other current accounts and savings accounts to see if we have something more suitable.

You won’t be able to close an account if it’s overdrawn or has any pending transactions on it.


How to close your account
To close your business account, you’ll need to complete and return the account closure form (37 KB). Please post the completed form to:

Santander Business Banking
Bridle Road
Bootle
L30 4GB

You can also fax it to us on 0844 800 9988.

Balances over £5000
If the balance of the account is over £5000, please also provide ID for all signatories of the account (see page 2 of the application checklist (143 KB) for a list of IDs we accept). 

Dormant accounts
If the account you’re trying to close is dormant, please also provide ID for all signatories (see page 2 of the application checklist (143 KB) for a list of IDs). 

We'll close your account within 5 days of receiving your account closure form, as long as the information on it is correct. 

If you have a balance on the account, we’ll transfer it to your chosen account or send a cheque in the business name. You’ll receive a letter confirming the closure.


If you plan on switching accounts
If your business current account isn’t right for you but another Santander account could be, compare our accounts. Once you’ve visited the page and found an account
you'd like to switch to, just click on the account and choose ‘Transfer your existing Santander account.’

If you want to switch your business current account to another bank, you can use the switching service to switch over more easily. Take a look at our 
switching your current account page for more details.
