well the need to use a proper business account has finally arisen. I do all my personal banking with Barclays and I rate them pretty highly but they are one of the most expensive for business banking. Has anyone got any views on HSBC. They’ve got better rates and 18 months free but I’ve been on hold for over half an hour trying to talk to them about the application I’ve started online! A quick google shows they were voted 9th in customer satisfaction survey carried out on business accounts in August. Not sure whether to stump the extra money a month for Barclays.
