Open Banking APIs

Open Banking APIs are free to use and provide up-to-date information about the location and facilities of our branches and ATMs, detailed product information for personal and business current accounts, lending to small to medium enterprises and commercial credit cards.

You can use this data to build applications that make it easier for personal and business customers to compare what’s offered by different banks.

The data provided through the associated APIs relates to the UK only, and is prepared to the Open API, data format and security standards as maintained by the Open Banking Implementation Entity (OBIE).

What we're working on

We continue to lead the way forward into a new era of open banking. We'll keep improving and extending the APIs so that you can carry on creating applications to help all banking customers.

By early 2018 we’ll deliver new APIs that will allow personal customers and small businesses to share their data securely with other banks and trusted third parties. This is nothing short of a revolution in banking and will change the face of financial services forever.
