I have checked my online banking for business and suddenly I had my account blocked with a minus 500 K in the account.Now I wished I had that overdraft but not the case.
I called them and they logged a complain , just chase them and been told the account is under review , without telling me as to why .This was one day before I had to pay all my subcontractors and suppliers plus HMRC
I am still waiting as we speak for them to refund me the money and tell me what is going on.

If you a have a business that is trading more then a year , with the account submitted and taxes paid I am not sure why Barclays would do that .Our turnover is not really that high either , so trying to get to see how Barclays is supporting SME .
After the issue will be sorted I will take my business somewhere else as definitely not worth the headache.I would not recommend ever .Luckily for personal banking I am with a different bank , that literally never did such a thing .I will also get a pre paid card just in case, some idiot decides to review my account.
I have to mention that I did call Barclays branch in order to tell them about transactions coming in and the nature of the business , yet they just decide here and now which payment goes trough and which not .

Remote Bank

The problem with Barclays is that it is a 'remote' bank, in that it is difficult to find a human being to speak to about money matters. This is particularly so where you need bank references for open other accounts etc. This can take months.

My bank card was damaged, so I went into a branch. Was immediately seen to by a staff member who tried to pass me off to one of their many machines. I explained my predicament, and was thankfully directed to a real person to deal with. Very friendly and helpful service by the cashier, and my new bank card arrived 2 days later.

Goodbye Local Branches

Current account. Does the job. I can pay things in and pay things out. I can set up the usual Direct Debits and Standing Orders. Online works fine. At least this is free unlike their previous packaged bank accounts. Plus Sides - its does work as a...

Current account. Does the job. I can pay things in and pay things out. I can set up the usual Direct Debits and Standing Orders. Online works fine. At least this is free unlike their previous packaged bank accounts. Plus Sides - its does work as a current account. Down Sides - good luck trying to find a branch of their bank if you live outside of a BIG city. They have closed so many branches now I have to pay for a bus to reach my branch. If I have a cheque to pay in worth £5 it costs me more in bus fares than the cheque is worth. Cheers Barclays.
