Bad Credit shouldn’t be a barrier to opening an account
For some, opening an account in the UK can prove extremely difficult, especially if you have poor credit, bad credit or no credit history. Suits Me® offer a personal e-money account with no credit checks, making us a great option if:
- You’re struggling to get a account with a high street provider
- You’ve had problems getting any other type of account
- You have a poor or bad credit rating
- You have no credit history
- You’re currently going through IVA or Bankruptcy
- You’re new to the UK
Open a UK e-money account with no credit checks
At Suits Me®, we understand that not having access to an account can prove stressful and can affect how you live your life.
Not having access to an account can potentially stop you from:
- Getting a job
- Accepting Universal Credit payments
- Saving time by paying for bills using direct debits and standing orders
- Being able to buy products and services online or over the phone
Why banks perform credit checks
Most UK banks perform credit checks which you are required to pass in order to open an account with them. This is usually a requirement from a bank as they offer their customers the option of an overdraft facility.
Suits Me® is a UK alternative to a traditional high street account with a contactless Mastercard® debit card and amazing features including direct debits, standing orders, UK transfers (international are available through our partner in the Suits Me® app) and more. Suits Me is a fee-paying e-money account with a pre-paid debit card. It is not a bank account and is not covered by FSCS deposit protection. Further fee details can be found on our Pricing and Terms & Conditions pages.
We strongly believe in financial inclusion and that everyone should have access to an account to be able to manage their money and finances. Especially in today’s modern society and digital living.
