Banking for people who lack capacity to make decisions (Scotland)

This leaflet will help if you need to take on the financial and property affairs of someone who lacks the capacity to look after some – or all – of their own financial affairs. It gives guidance on how a bank or building society account can be operated on another person’s behalf; and details the various ways in which another person’s finances can be managed (for example using a Power of Attorney or becoming a financial guardian).

This guide applies for Scotland. There is a separate leaflet for England and Wales.
