Authority on signatories

Schools must ensure signatories are updated as soon as staff roles change.

Schools must ensure signatories are updated as soon as staff responsibilities change or staffs leave post. Failure to do this in a timely fashion can result in a security risk or lead to delays in writing cheques and withdrawing cash.

If a member of staff with LloydsLink Online access has left you must also email Corporate Banking who will remove their privileged access to the system.

Please complete the following forms for amendments to bank account signatories and cheque presenters:
