Recently opened this Account. I chose it because it gives a decent rate and easy access on a low opening balance, which is what I needed. I have transfered money into the account at three different times now, using the Faster Payments System from an external bank and I am very impressed with the speed of the deposit.
Only had a problem with the opening of the account, regarding ID. Send them more identification than what they ask for, because when they give a brief summary of what they want from list a and b, it might not be the i.d they expect (e.g. don't send them anything like P45/P60s etc... because they will not except them, and even though there from HM Customs). I sent off exactly what they asked for on the list, but mine still came back as still needing more I.D.
Speed of the deposit system.... wow
Be careful what you send them as opening ID. Send more than asked for!
