We get it
We know what it’s like to be an SME – we’ve run our own. And we know how it feels to be uninspired by run-of-the-mill personal savings accounts too.
Yes, we’ve got the very latest digital banking tools, but we never forget the value of getting to know you and your ambitions properly.
We don’t delay
Time’s precious. So we short-cut access to our lending decision makers and we let you open a personal savings account online, in just a few clicks.
Our common approach to lending combines a human touch with class leading technology to create flexible products that fit your unique business needs
Get the interest your money deserves. Don’t leave your cash surplus in your business current account earning little or no interest. With a Recognise Bank Business Savings Account you can earn interest on your business balance whether you’re saving toward future investment plans or purchases, or putting money aside for things like tax or VAT.
We offer personal savings accounts with compelling rates, flexible products and the peace of mind to ensure that your money is always safe. Furthermore, your savings are being put towards helping ambitious, small and medium-sized UK businesses. This way you are making a tangible difference to the economy and society too.
Quick tips to survive and thrive post COVID19
Stay close to your customers. Don’t underestimate the value in simply making your customers aware you’re still around.
Put relationships before profit. Going that extra mile to support your customers is likely to place you in pole position for a swift recovery.
Get your strategic house in order. Your mission, marketing position, brand strategy, now is the time to tackle them.
Celebrate small wins. A repeat order, an early payment, a new client. Anything that flies in the face of the current tide, raise a glass!
Show your appreciation. Be sure to take time to recognise and thank your colleagues. The smallest gestures can go a long way in demonstrating just how much you value your people.
Be kind to yourself. It may seem counterintuitive to take your foot off the gas, but rest aids productivity, not to mention sanity. So recognise this and be disciplined about taking some proper downtime.
