Change in circumstances
If you foresee any changes in your circumstances that may increase your outgoings (for example an increase in living costs such as a rent or mortgage payment increase) or any changes to your situation that may reduce or have a negative effect on your monthly disposable income (for example a change in your employment situation or number of hours you work or if you anticipate a reduction in income from imminent retirement, maternity / paternity or extended leave) please either apply by phone on 0800 756 7777 or call into your local M&S Bank branch.

Checking your details
When we check your details with a credit reference agency, a search/enquiry is registered to say that you've applied for credit today. As part of our checks, we link your name with individuals associated with you financially, and any previous names you've provided.
We'll also check your details with a fraud prevention agency to prevent fraud and money laundering. If you've provided false or inaccurate information (and fraud is identified) we'll pass your details to fraud prevention agencies. If you want, we can explain how your information held by fraud and other credit reference agencies may be used.
Once you submit your application
If you apply online, we'll let you know if you have been accepted and send you the paperwork to sign and return to us. We will then be able to open your account.
