Price Plan Guarantee
The way your business makes and receives payments can change over time. To make sure you’re always on the plan that offers you the best deal, we’ll carry out a review each year.
We’ll contact you if we think a different plan could save you money, and move you on to that plan unless you tell us otherwise. However, if you think another plan would suit your needs better, you can move whenever you like – just let us know.
Loyalty Reward is our way of rewarding you for being our customer by paying you back a proportion of the charges we apply to your current account on a monthly basis.
The table below shows the percentage of your bank charges you could get back the longer you bank with us.
