It doesn't matter if you’re up and running or just starting out. Our panel of business banking specialists are at the end of the phone to offer general help or guidance with your business ideas and planning.
You don’t even have to be one of our customers to call our Startup Hotline, as it’s available to any UK business.
What does our Startup Hotline do?
Our team of business banking specialists can:
Signpost you to support for writing an effective business plan – which should cover the following: what your business does, your target market, how you plan to make sales, the key people in the business, the level of business income you expect to make and whether you need short or long term borrowing to support you, now or in the future.
If you have already produced a business plan we will review it and offer constructive feedback.
Where appropriate we’ll also introduce you to one of our Business Managers to help you open a business account.
We’ll also be happy to talk to you about a borrowing request that’s been turned down by one of our competitors.
