Basic bank accounts
Basic bank accounts are designed to help low income families and those that struggle to obtain a regular current account because of bad credit. A basic bank account is an attractive option for anyone applying for their first bank account, or for people worried about over spending as they do not provide overdraft facilities.
A basic current account is straightforward and simple to manage. They allow you to receive the kind of benefits you may expect from a standard current account such as receiving money and paying bills by direct debit.
