Danske Small Business

A choice of two Business Current Accounts to suit the needs of customers with a turnover of less than £1 million.

We’re committed to supporting local businesses through this difficult time. If you would like to become a Danske business current account customer please contact your local branch or our Business Direct team on 03452 666 555

We’re receiving a lot of account opening requests right now so it’s taking us a little longer than usual to deal with these requests. We really appreciate your patience and understanding.

Helping Northern Ireland grow again


“At Danske Bank, we see small business as being at the heart of the local economy.”

Head of Small Business

Product details

Due to market conditions, we’ve taken the difficult decision to raise the transaction and maintenance fees we charge on our Business Current Accounts for the first time in several years.

These changes will be made from 1 October 2021 and you can read full details here.

We understand that you may have questions about what these changes will mean for you and have provided further information here, including details of how you can get in touch.
