Busting through the Jargon of Business Banking

By Helen Livesey

The Business Clinic opened its doors in April once again for their regular monthly clinic. Local “celebrity” Kirsty Cockcroft hosted the event for an audience of more than twenty local business owners.

One such surprising tip was that visiting comparison quote websites can damage your credit rating ....who knew!
It helps to have four or more credit accounts as this demonstrates your ability to manage finance.

Did you know as CIC or Charity you can receive free business banking for life?

Did you also know that your personal credit file is updated monthly and not annually? Big brother so it seems really is watching.

Did you know it only takes 7 days to switch your personal or business account?


How great is that! Even when switching your account you may receive a free banking period.

Free banking periods are currently available for up to 25 months!
