Does anyone know what documents i can use to open a bank account in the UK?

And what do i need to just open a basic bank account? I don’t have a passport or driver licence. I have one bank account but need another. I seem to remember my friend having a basic bank account.

    I think you need a proof of address a resent bank statement or a bill with your name and address would help and maybe a birth certificate. The best bet would be to ask the bank.

    When I opened one I took my Birth Certificate and an old voting card from the Local Council as proof of address.

    You will need anything that can prove your ID on it.

    check on the bank’s web site for their guidance on suitable documents that they will accept.

    Personally I would avoid Nat West (and any others in the group) as they punish innocent crime victims without checking their facts. Lloyds/TSB deal with fraudulent transactions in a far more effective and and customer friendly manner. Lloyds assume innocent until proved guilty – Nat West on the other hand assume the customer is guilty.

    birth certificate, proof of address maybe proof of salary. You will definately need photographic proof such as a passport or driving licence.
