APS financial Snapshot
We’ve built our banking services to make managing money easy, for everyone. Whether you’re a credit-impaired consumer, a startup struggling to get a ﬁnancial foothold, or a local authority processing payroll and beneﬁts payments, APS has the ﬁnancial services solution. Debit and credit products, bespoke services and open source technology that embraces the FinTech-led future of banking – we make your money work for you.
There are more than eight million British consumers sick and tired of the barriers that make everyday banking a chore. For those who can’t get a bank account to those who think the banks should be doing better, our debit and credit services aren’t just an alternative but instead a leap forwards in design, delivery and functionality.
That’s why we’re now the primary banking services provider for 30% of our customers – a 200% increase in the last three years – and the primary complement account provider for the 70% who trust us with their security, online shopping and travel transactions.

More than 40% of our customers – startups and SMEs with up to nine employees in particular – have been declined a high street bank account or say they’re unhappy with them. That’s the equivalent of up to two million British businesses.
We’ve democratised our accounts, breaking down barriers for the fastest, easiest opening with online instant approval and access to essential payment solutions for every business. That makes us a smarter, easier and better value alternative to high street banks.

For public sector
We provide banking services to more than 25% of UK local government and have delivered beneﬁts disbursements programmes for more than 140 different councils.
