Business Banking

I have banked with HSBC for years, with no real problems. I have two business bank Current Accounts, and the account fees are edging up from £5.50/m to £6.50/m.

i've just realised you meant Club Lloyds Monthly Saver, 2.5%. i haven't bothered with that.

Re: Regular Savers

i'd say that's sensible.. i didn't have RSs with any of those anyway, but i too plan to retain Club Lloyds. i find it to be a useful current account.
only RSs i have are at 5%: HSBC, M&S, Nationwide, along with various monthly DDs in to Friendly Societies and a Credit Union.

Re: Extra TSB classic accounts

i don't have any accounts with Tesco at all nowadays.
all of my c/as are linked to MonBS and POBOS, along with other DDs to FSs, our CU, Ecology etc.
i don't envisage closing ClubLloyds or TSB Classic any time soon.

Re: Extra TSB classic accounts

so we currently have 3% on £1,500 from TSB and 1.5% on £5,000 from Lloyds, right?

Re: Amazon Credit Card

yes, that's an interesting concept. the first point is fairly standard, but i wonder which other cards might allow you to 'purchase' cash withdrawals.. and i wonder whether i might find revolut useful.

Re: Replacement mbna - cash to account

i would just call them and request the transfer. it's your money. just elevate to the point that you are speaking to someone willing to help.

Re: Fund Selection for ISA

fwiw this has remained the case so far. my ISA is concentrated off the scale: AMZN, GOOGL and Cash.

Re: Regular Savers

as discussed elsewhere, Nationwide have pulled their 5% RegSav. mine matured and bagged a new one a few weeks ago, so still on board - but the only 5%s available now are from the HSBC stable. my guess is that, with no other providers matching them, they'll look to lower their rates.
