Know your SME customer
CMA reveals list of top SME banks
for customer satisfaction
SME customers with business current accounts were asked how likely they would be to recommend their provider, their provider’s online and mobile banking services, services in branches and business centres, SME overdraft and loan services and relationship/account management services to other SMEs.
16,802 people were surveyed in total. Results are updated every six months, in August and February.
SMEs include businesses, clubs, charities and societies with an annual turnover/income of up to £25m (exclusive of VAT and other turnover-related taxes).
The results show the proportion of customers of each provider who said they were ’extremely likely’ or ‘very likely’ to recommend each service.
Participating banks included: Allied Irish Bank (GB), Bank of Scotland, Barclays Bank UK, Clydesdale Bank, Handelsbanken, HSBC UK, Lloyds Bank, Metro Bank, NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland, Santander UK, The Co-operative Bank, TSB, and Yorkshire Bank.
Approximately 1,200 customers a year are surveyed across Great Britain for each provider; results are only published where at least 100 customers have provided an eligible score for that service in the survey period.
