I am a discharged bankrupt (since 08/03). My partner and I have been running a business as a sole trader business (in my partners name) for about 18 months and we have just become limited and now need to change from a sole trader to a limited company bank account.
What we thought would be an easy transition is turning into a bit of a problem in that now I am listed as a director we have been declined by one bank because of what we assume to be a bad credit history for me (my partner's is outstanding so it's most unlikely to be a problem there and the account that we have used when we operated as a sole trader has an exemplary history). Does anyone have any knowledge or experience or advice on where to go to obtain a business bank account? We only require a simply current account and no credit/overdraft facilities.
Any thoughts would be gratefully accepted!!
