Our non-standard account FlexBasic is only right for you if:
To make your application as quick as possible, you'll need your address details for the last 3 years handy and also your employer's address if you're employed. (If you can't remember an address you can always find it using the Royal Mail address finder.)
If you're currently bankrupt, you should wait until the bankruptcy order has been made before opening the account.
We should be able to give you an instant decision and set up the account straight away. If not, you may need to take some ID to your local branch.
Whether you're a new or existing customer, we must verify your identity when you open a new account.

We will only ask for enough information to allow us to open your account. Find out more about which forms of identification are acceptable.
