Corporate Membership

The account for organisations

Product Information

Our corporate membership account available to businesses and authorities

Corporate membership is for organisations (rather than individuals) based in Acorn Community Bank. Businesses, charities, partnerships, clubs, societies, local councils and voluntary groups, whether incorporated or not, can become corporate members and place sums on deposit.

By depositing funds with us your organisation’s money helps the credit union to grow and support the local community.

The maximum deposit is £60,000. Deposits are protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) for many organisations. You can check if it applies to you using the FSCS checker tool.

Acorn Community Bank does not pay interest on deposits. Instead, corporate deposits, just like savings from individual members, would qualify for a profit sharing dividend.

If you wish to apply for corporate membership, you can download an application form here.

The account benefits from our participation in the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) subject to the standard conditions of the scheme.

Money can be paid into your account:

  • By Standing Order or bank transfer.
  • Please use your Membership Number as the transaction reference.
  • By Cash at our Cavendish Square office

Funds may be deposited, and withdrawals made at any time. In practice, if 2-signature verification applies, a withdrawal may only be made during office hours.

An annual dividend may be paid on sums deposited in Corporate Saving Accounts. The dividend rate will be determined by the Board of Directors and ratified by members at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). Any dividend due will be paid directly after AGM.
