How to apply for a business account

At Community First Bank, non-individuals can open up an account in the name of a company, association, trust, co-operative, government department/agency or local government entity.
For existing members of Community First Bank
Simply call us on 1300 13 22 77 to open a new account over the phone, or visit your nearest Community First Bank Financial Services Store to open an account in person.

For new members
As a mutual organisation, we are owned by our members. As a result, when you become a member you are required to pay a $2 member share in the credit union. This is refundable should you choose to close your account later.
To become a member and open an account, you will need to complete the business membership application and Verifying Officer's Nomination of Signatories form - both found on our online forms page under 'business'. If you are applying in the name of a Trust, you will also need to complete the Trust Account Form.
Where to send your completed forms

What information will I need to apply?
