What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit?

  • A Resolution authorising named signatories to open the account. The Resolution must include the full names of all signatories and be signed by an official of the charity.
  • We need to confirm the identity of each authorised signatory operating the account. We use an electronic verification system when opening an account. If this is successful, you will not need to do anything.
