How do I pay funds into my account?
You can fund or top up* your account by electronic transfer, cheque or ISA transfer (if applicable).
All funds must be transferred from your nominated UK bank account (excluding ISA transfers). This is the UK current account in your name(s) linked to your account with Close Brothers Savings. You may ask us to change this at any time up to 5 days before any repayments are due.
Our clearing bank partner is Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), so this may show as the payee name. To find out more please click here.
By electronic transfer:
Account name: Close Brothers Ltd
Sort Code: 16-51-87
Account no.: Your Close Brothers Savings account number (if known) or 00000000
Reference: your surname and postcode
Please make sure your funds are available when we process your application as we require both the completed application form and cleared funds to open your account. Funds can be sent in one single payment or by multiple instalments from your nominated UK bank account.
For applications in your sole name, your cheque must be drawn on either a personal UK bank account in your sole name or a joint account (of which you are a party). For applications in joint names, your cheque must be drawn on a UK bank account in your joint names or in either of your sole names.
