Local bank branch closures

It is very worrying to see yet more local bank branches being shut down, leaving small business customers without the services they rely on. Cash still remains an important element of many small firms and it needs to be banked at the end of the day. For some small businesses online banking is not always a viable substitute, not least because of poor broadband coverage in many rural areas. While there are moves by some banks to allow basic services to be accessed in Post Office branches, the Post Office is not yet able to step in as an alternative with full business services. This is an area FSB North Yorkshire are working hard on, if you would like to provide a case study or have been effected by Bank Closures, please email emma.smailes@fsb.org.uk
