    Business bank account with bad credit rating 10th Feb 11 at 5:45 PM
    i have started my own small business. i am a sole trader. but i have yet to set up a business bank account. tried to do so with my bank who i have my current account with, but they said with a bad credit past, if i don't pass a credit check, i would not get the business account.

    So my question is, which bank can i go to, to open a business account, that will not need a credit check, or at least would not be concerend that i have bad credit history. I do not need an overdraft or any credit facilities. i just need to be able to pay in cheques in my business name, maybe set up some standing orders from my account. the normal things you would expect.

    any advice?

  • While I oft bemoan Xmas being a retail festival. It's strange today many are bitter that shops are REDUCING prices, usually its the opposite

  • And leave people held hostage to high Xmas prices? Our tradition was Xmas discounts spread in Nov/Dec not on one day

  • John Lewis website is down - its price matching black friday deals. Maybe its a good day to buy cheap extra servers?
