  • What is a current account?

    A current account is provided by a bank or building society as a secure place to store money. It is most often used for depositing wages from an employer, making regular purchases using a debit card and paying for household bills through a direct debit or standing order each month.

    Having a current account allows customers to track their personal finances effectively, making sure they have enough in their account to cover regular payments, as well as spend money when required.

    Which is the best current account for me?

    Whatever reasons you have for opening a new current account, you will always find an option to suit your circumstances. It’s worth understanding which current account is going to benefit you the most before applying for one, especially if you’re opening one for a specific purpose. Most current accounts will allow you to:

    • Deposit money or allow an employer to pay your wages
    • Withdraw money from an ATM
    • Transfer money from other accounts
    • Set up direct debits and standing orders
    • Pay for items using a debit card
    • Access online banking

    Most current accounts actually have multiple uses and are generally good to have for anyone looking to keep their money safe. The account provider will often provide certain perks just for owning the account, so it can be worth checking those prior to making a final decision.

    What current accounts are available?

    As much as current accounts all perform relatively the same function, there are still different options available that will suit your particular circumstances. Whether you are a full-time worker, still in education, have a family or all of the above, you will find a current account to suit your purposes. They include:
