Setting up a business bank account is a key stage in the entrepreneur’s journey. When establishing their banking provider, company owners want efficiency, transparency, and customer service. In this category, we will find the banking operator that best understands the needs of smaller businesses – the provider that recognises the value of close customer relationships to help business owners grow their operation without any avoidable issues on the financial side.

The British Small Business Awards, taking place on November 1 at the Grand Connaught Rooms, London, is the leading celebration of the UK’s small business sector, recognising the nation’s best sole traders, micro businesses and small companies – as well as the service providers, financiers and advisers that support them.
