Business bank account query
i do - i'm happy with it. they've just added cross-border/multi-currency accounts. i've not had any issues yet (since the start of the year). i've also just signed up for Anna which looks good too (free at the moment, won't be for much longer). and i'm gathering a list of UK SME bank accounts here:
Hi Gussie – I run a digital agency and we've always used Barclays who actually have an excellent business banking experience despite being one of the dreaded legacy banks
The app is amazing, it integrates with Xero, security is great. It's a world different from the other legacy banking apps I've seen. I created a Tide account to demo it but haven't actually used it for the business, so can't really comment. At first glance it looked good.
My gut feel is to trust the resources of the large, established bank over the startup on cybersecurity, reliability, customer support etc. How rational that actually is, I'm not sure – but it's my business so I'm pretty risk averse when it comes to our banking.
So I'd definitely recommend Barclays above other legacy banks. Although Tide may well be good in other ways.
