Banks/Building Societies offering Fee-Free Bank Accounts

Banks and Building societies in the UK are to launch basic bank accounts which will not charge a fee for missed payments.

The accounts will be available to anyone who does not already have a bank account, is ineligible for a standard current account or can’t use their existing account because of financial problems.

The new accounts will be available from 1 January 2016 to people who fail to qualify for a full current account.

Contact your local bank branch in order to make an application for a basic bank account.
