Opening a bank account if you are new or returning to the UK

This is a practical leaflet which answers in an easy-to-understand format, some of the questions people who are new or newly returned to the UK have about opening accounts in this country.

It also provides a list of documents that such customers are likely to have at their disposal and banks are able to accept for the purpose of identification verification, and explains why the identification process is necessary. As well as being of benefit to applicants, the leaflet also serves as a handy memory-jogger for bank staff dealing with such applications.
