Could anyone suggest what bank they think is best for a 16 year old sole-trader who wishes to open a business account?

Kind regards,

I think you'll have problems. Most business accounts, if not all, require the account holder to be 18+. Having said that, it might be possible for someone else - a parent, for example - to open it on your behalf. I'm not sure.

Someone else will have more information!

If you do get round it, check out Abbey - free business banking forever.

ya! i have tried..... its a "law of the land" that u hav to be 18+
the banks have no say in the matter..... sorta annoyes me.
yer, a parent can open it (as if they work for you) but then if they are on benefits they will be questioned about it and maybe even by the tax man.
