By The Fleximize Team

If you're a business owner but haven't yet heard of the challenger banks, you could be missing a trick when it comes to funding. Metro Bank is one of the new arrivals on the banking scene attracting customers away from the established Big 4 – that's Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds Bank and Natwest.

The challengers, which also include Tesco Bank, Aldermore, State Bank of India and Virgin Money, are taking on the big banking brands by launching new services and offering deals for both consumers and businesses.

Although these new banks are mainly online, Metro Bank has stores around London and parts of the South East of England, after securing the first new licence to operate on high streets in 100 years.

Metro Bank business banking

Metro offers a business bank account for firms with a turnover of up to £2 million. This includes 24/7 phone banking, fast account opening and free European transactions. There is a monthly £5 account fee charged if your Metro Business Bank Account balance falls below £5,000 at the close of business on any day. If your balance stays above £5,000 for the duration of the whole month, the account fee will be waived.

Metro Bank also has a commercial bank account, but that's for bigger or more complex businesses with an annual turnover of more than £2 million. But with this account, customers get access to a relationship team and expert industry support.
