    Recommendations for club accounts for non-charity 18th May 17 at 11:14 AM
    Hello. We run a small project that benefits vulnerable children. We're not registered as a charity, and have so far self-funded what we do. We're small and simple, but need to do a small amount of fundraising now to help towards costs. It's been suggested we open a club bank account, and we're looking for recommendations. Many thanks.

    It is most important that your funds do not go through one of your committee members accounts - no matter how honest and well meaning they are.

    I have a CAF account - you can pay cash in at HSBC - but it needs a minimum 1000 to open and a charge of 5 a month.

    School PTA used a Natwest club account.

    From my experience avoid. Local branch didn't have a clue about the basics such as changing signatories on the account.
