Account opening information

Thank you for your interest

Due to unprecedented demand we have opened a waitlist for new small business customers wishing to open a new account with HSBC. If you join this waitlist we will email you when applications for new accounts are open again.

We welcome interest from UK businesses looking to HSBC but we are being clear and open, so you can make an informed decision about your account needs, and we will only ask new customers to complete a full application when we can process it in a reasonable timeframe.

You can still open an HSBC Kinetic Account, our mobile-first business bank account. Click here to see if you have a compatible device, are eligible and if this is the best account for your business banking needs.


Existing applicants

If you have already applied for a new Business Account, or Feeder Account prior to 9am on 30th September 2020, your application will be processed as normal, but please bear with us as wait times are longer than usual.

Customers who have applied for an account prior to the waitlist period will be allowed to apply for a Bounce Back Loan before the scheme closes if they wish.

Given the high volume of requests we are handling we are unable to provide individual updates on your application. We will contact you if we require new information or when your application has been processed.

All businesses can also access business support through our Tomorrow Ready programme which offers free tools and content for UK businesses.
