Our current accounts

Being able to access your funds readily is important for your day to day financial management. A current account helps you keep your money safely stored but also gives you instant access through your branch, online banking and telephone banking, subject to available funds.

But one size is not always the best for your finances, so we’ve developed a series of accounts and we hope you’ll find one that suits your financial needs. You can compare our current accounts here. All accounts subject to status and eligibility.

You can open most of our current accounts online in around 10-15 minutes if you’re new to Yorkshire Bank and don’t need a joint account or overdraft. Otherwise, call us or visit us in branch to apply.
