Accuse me of being a pessimist about the fee free banking.
As long as you keep your balance over £5000, it doesn't necessarily mean it's free, because they probably pay you s#it for having the money with them anyways.
I have an account with Lloyd's TSB and they offer the same deal in a round about way. They charge the fees and then refund them at the end of the statement. Oh! And you don't need a balance of £5000.
Not voted either way.

If you choose to accept cheques that's a good point yes! Otherwise no …If you choose to accept cheques that's a good point yes! Otherwise no problem if the customer pays with cash or card (via payment processor) and if you're clear to HMRC what the account is for, declaring it's wholly a business asset then no lines should ever be blurred over Ltd liability? But hey you're probably right, if your business goes under it only takes one jobsworth between the bank and HMRC to kick off and the nearest lawyer will be gleefully arguing that all your actual personal assets are obviously part of the business too...



When the bank finds out that you are using a personal account for business transactions, they'll close it and all other accounts of the account holders.

Typical Lawyer, gives advice without any justification lol.



Actually, most lay clients, I find, don't really care for the ins-and-outs chapter and verse justification. They just want to know the bottom line.

Check the comments section - http://moneysavinganswers.com/business/banking/tide-the-business-bank-account-alternative/Since business banking fees are an allowable expense, I'm not sure that too many people care about a £5-£10 standing charge of traditional banks.


Yes I still think they have a lot to prove but as a cheap and fast bank account it's been fine for us so far. We got screwed by Santander losing our ELECTRONIC application, then we had less than 10 days until we needed the account by, so Tide was a no brainer, we'll stay unless we have reason to leave.

You are correct, I am with Nat West business, 2 years ago I paid out £61 in fees, last year £91, this year it will around £100(gone up to 35p per auto transaction) I don't like paying it on an account that has been in credit for 28 years but at the end of the day it has worked perfectly for 28 years. I won't be tying up £5k (which I am earning 3% on in Tesco for now) to get free banking.

Does anyone know what happens after the 5 years, when it is time to …Does anyone know what happens after the 5 years, when it is time to remortgage, in terms of the new home value vs what equity has been paid already? So let's say I bought home at £165K. Paid off £40K for the 5 years Fixed term. Is the new remortgage gonna be based on the left equity of £125K? Or does it take into account that the house may have increased in value during the 5 years and interest costs? Sorry for the ignorance, but I am unclear on this and could not find a straightforward answer on the web.


Hey... It takes account of the property's new value. So if your house is worth £200k in five years time and you owe £125k you're new loan-to-value (LTV) will be 62.5% and you'll be eligible for mortgage deals up to that maximum (although in reality the LTV bands tend to be 60%, 70%, 80% etc). The lower the LTV, the better the mortgage deal you can get. Hope that helps.

I'm remortgaging with Santander. 1.94% and no fees on 75%LTV. Also 1% cash back on the 123 account which makes it even better.

Yorkshire Building Society - 5 year fixed - 85% LTV - 2.12% - £995 fee - I have been there customer for nearly 5 years, brilliant service.

I just remortgaged with atom, got 2.39% for 5 years with no fee but I did have 85% LTV. Was very painless tbh.

I did get charged some fees, but they related to buying out the government share of my property not the mortgage itself.

They'll all be competing for the customers. Hope it works out like that, my mortgage is due for renewal in January!



I don't think you'll see much of a rate drop if the base rate is to go to down to 0.1% anyway. Carney has said that he is willing to overshoot 2% inflation without raising the BoE rate but most banks only passed on about half of the recent drop anyway.

I've got just got a 1.94% 5 yr fixed with Halifax and there was a 1.34% 2 year fixed as well. You're not going to see mortgage rates drop much below that - the margin just doesn't justify the capital and risk.

For those bashing this deal and somehow suggesting that Metro bank's offer is negative are full of rubbish. I'm not a dog owner, but have been one until I moved to London and would love to be in the future. Having a bank that encourages you to consider pet ownership is a great thing as far as I'm concerned especially from a shelter that has had to put down 1/3 dogs it received (in 2010). After this deal I'll be switching to Metro bank (I've considered it in the past but didn't see a branch near me) even though I am unlikely to make use of the offer because I want to encourage offers like this over "free" mobile or travel insurance. And as for the OP, have some heat!

When will a bank just be a bank that's fair and reasonable to its customers? How about reinstating the policy that we all bought into when we signed up to no overseas bank charges?

Also, perhaps Barclays could take a second away from helping old people Skype to give better mortgage rates?

Much to ask?

If the owner on benefits took the pet as usual they would not have got a penny. Doing a good deed for someone then donating on their behalf and treated like they were the RSPCA and I had been abusing the animal. Disgusting.The paid support staff at most charities act like public service admin staff, its vulgar.

They are opening one in slough soon, and i'm pretty sure there is one already in reading.

Anyone considering opening an account with Metro might want to read some of the posts on this MSE thread. Some people quite happy, but an increasing number (including one previously avid supporter who totally changed his view when things started to go wrong) very unhappy:

Now of they were giving out 99's to draw attention to how many people are on a average 50 seater tram during rush hour it wouldn't have been too far from the truth...

Hey, u live an learn! Don't post any deals about re-homing an animal in need with an ethically sensitive bank offering to help u with the fees. Next deal: Pitbull pups available now, 50quid each, meet me in the queens Head! :-P

The money you give to re-home one of these pets is used to cover the micro chipping, spaying etc and look after the ones who are in their care and the hundreds that get dumped on their doorsteps, I think it's a stupid idea. I obviously don't know what arrangement has been made between the two parties but I hope Battersea is not loosing out and the animals it cares for.

Charging money to get an old pet is mental anyway, people give away puppies and kittens for free so the fee is off putting in the first instance.

Up to £105?

I thought most dogs homes only asked for a donation of about £20-£30 quid for rehousing?

Oh wait, it's Battersea. **** in London always costs thrice as much as everywhere else.

And you're probably just as likely to find flea ridden, leg missing scruffs in Battersea.
