    Dunno about Halifax but I recently opened up a current account at NatWest and along with passport, driving licence and utility bill, they also wanted to see my most recent payslip and my most recent bank statement from my other account (with HSBC).

    Normally with a bank its 2 forms of photo id and atleast 1 utility bill or proof of addess.
    Take as much as you can find. Why Halifax out of interest?

    You can do it all online. Dont even need to go to the branch. GF opened one a week ago.

    HSBC Internet banking is very good. Far better than RBS

    An attache case crammed with £50 notes should do the trick.

    Driving Licence and utility bill dated within the last 4 months. Make sure it's actually a proper bill, not a meter reading.

    If not, take your passport and use that as ID and DL as proof of address.

    If your on the electoral register you may not need either.
