How do I apply for a business account?

You will need to visit the IKEA website and follow the link : IKEA BUSINESS
Kindly complete the application form and return by post to the following address:

Business Credit Control Dept
Kingston Park

Please ensure that the terms and conditions are agreed to and signed by a Company Director. You will also need to enclose a copy of a current utility bill.

How long does it take to open a business account?

Once our accounts team receive the application form they will run standard credit checks and when completed they will contact you. This can usually take 2-3 days. 

If the terms and conditions are not signed by a company director or head teacher (for schools) and a utility bill is not enclosed this will slow down the process. 

How do I shop once my account is opened?

Once the account is open you should expect to receive your IKEA BUSINESS account card in around 10-14 days

This card will have a credit limit as confirmed by our accounts team at the time of the account opening. If you have a payment in advance order account the credit limit would be nil but you are still able to use our IKEA Business Team for making orders and use of our planning system.

Once you receive your business card you can then use this in any UK IKEA store to shop.

Alternatively you can choose to use the expertise of our IKEA Business Team. Simply complete an order form, which you can download here: IKEA BUSINESS order form and email to ikeabusinessuk.orders@ikea.com 

Once the order is received our team will look at stock availability and send you a quotation and provisional delivery date (please allow 48 hours for a response).
Please check the quotation details are correct, especially the delivery address and date and confirm acceptance of the quotation with our IKEA Business Team. Once received the delivery can then be arranged and a delivery date comfirmed with you. 

Can I shop in store?

Once you have received your IKEA BUSINESS account card you will be able to shop in any UK store. In some stores we have dedicated business points where our in house specialists are there to assist you with any questions. Please refer to the website for the most up to date information at www.ikea.co.uk/business.

When passing through our check outs you may be asked for extra ID such as business card, compliment slip etc. And if you have an account using a purchase order you or your representative will need the same.

If you do shop in store using the IKEA BUSINESS account card you will be sent a VAT invoice and will have a 30 day payment facility.

Can I shop online?

Unfortunately at the present time you are not able to shop online using the IKEA BUSINESS account. 

Is stock always available?

Whilst we try our hardest to carry the full range of products occasionally we are not able to offer the products straight way. This could be that the product has a supply issue where we are waiting for more to arrive from our manufacturer or it could be that we have discontinued the stock.  In all cases we will update you to the situation and try to offer you an alternative. 
Our lead time ( when you can expect the order to arrive) aims to be 10-14 days or up to 21 days for bulk orders.  Again we will let you know when your order is processed. 

If I need to top up my account how do I do that?

Our accounts team can be contacted by email at uk.business@ikea.com

Top ups can be made by credit card or by BACS Transfers and we would ask that these are made prior to 12 noon the day before you would like your order to be processed. 

Can I use my IKEA Business account overseas?

You can only use your IKEA BUSINESS account in the UK.  We do however offer a business service in many countries- please refer to the individual country website for more information

If the delivery is to a building/construction site please note that our delivery company will only deliver to the site entrance due to insurance legalities. 

We would also ask you to inform us of the following at the time of ordering.
Will there be time to load/unload?
Is there a traffic restriction zone?
Are there any height/weight restrictions?
Will the vehicle need a parking permit for the delivery time?
Are there any other time restrictions?
If delivering to a site please provide the site contact details?

My order is a split delivery - what does this mean?

Sometimes our team find that they need to send some parts of your order from one of our stores and some parts from our large distribution warehouse, this is in order to fulfill your order so you don’t have to wait.

If this is the case you will receive two quotations – one which will say distribution and will have a delivery date and the other one will usually say SP150 and will come from a store and again will show a delivery date. Please do not worry if the dates are different.

You will only be charged for one delivery.
