    HSBC are good and they have better opening hours for deposits. Plus they are willing to advise more. I found Barclay's to pushy. Alliance and Leicester offer good rates but are really hands of and charge you if you don't deposit a certain amount with them each month. My best advice is go with the bank who you feel are the most supportive and friendly after all if your business is sucessful (and hopefully it will be) your going to be seeing a lot of them.

    • I use Royal Bank of Scotland and I'm finding them good. They give you a year free of charges for new businesses and transferring from another. They showed me a chart comparing charges (after the year free) and they are slightly cheaper than other banks.

    • I have been with Nat West bank, and their commercial section is very good as a whole. Depending on your relationship with the business manager, you may find one who is very helpful and on the other hand you may find one who is inflexible. Don't forget to negotiate the bank charges and overdraft facility if it was offered.

    • My boyfriend and I own a small business. We have used a big huge chain bank and smaller community bank that only has four locations in our area. Whenever we dealt with the the larger bank it was very impersonal. It just felt cold. Also whenever we had a problem it was like jumping through hoops to get something done or people won't call us back. We are currently with our small community bank and couldn't be happier. They all know us by name and face. It is very nice to go there. They are very nice and they go the extra distance to help us if we have a question or a problem. A couple even use our services. I say find a smaller bank instead of one of those chain ones. The bigger ones are so impersonal I'd rather be friendly with the people who are handling my money.
