It’s important that the person paying you has the right details.
They’ll need your:
- full first name (for example, ‘Thomas’ not ‘Tom’)
- last name
- sort code
- account number (and account reference, if needed)
- account type – personal or business
For joint accounts, you only need to give them your name, not both names.
Expecting a payment into a non-personal account? Then make sure they have your full business or organisation name, and choose the account type as ‘business’ not ‘personal’.
