Business Choice Account

This product is getting a Virgin Money makeover

The Yorkshire Bank Business Choice Account is no longer available for new applications. If you have already started applying for a Yorkshire Bank Business Choice Account, you have until 14th April to complete your application

Get ready for a life more Virgin

Virgin Money teamed up with Yorkshire Bank back in October 2018. Since then, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to bring the two banks together.

From March 2021, our business banking range will be getting a Virgin Money makeover. You’ll start to see our new logo on things like statements and emails. Our website and digital services are getting the full Virgin Money treatment and we’ll begin to answer the phone as Virgin Money too.

Visit our Business Virgin Money Makeover page to see all the good things coming your way.
