Can anyone recommend a good bank for business banking?

Just that, really. I'm with Halifax for everything else but when I set up as a freelance Will writer and asked them to open a business account for me they shunted me over toLloyds TSB who do all their business banking.

I'm not happy with the service/charges etc and looking to move.

Any recommendations?

It will depend a lot on what you will you the account for - for example will you do a lot of cash transactions, will you need to go in to the branch a lot, how many cheques will you write, etc.

I am with HSBC and it is virtually free, but then I don't use cash and receive and send most of my payments by BACS. The first 18 months were free and since then all I have had to pay for is a small charge for having a business credit card.

Thanks Mrs Curly. I don't particularly want to go into the branch any more than necessary. Don't ever go overdrawn so it's really just like a personal account and don't really want to pay any charges as it's not as though they're providing advice or anything, just a cheque cashing service.

Will look at HSBC, thanks
