Bank of Scotland is one of the largest institutions in UK banking. As part of Lloyds Banking Group we have knowledge of both Bank of Scotland and Lloyds TSB heritage, and have over 300 years' experience of providing guidance and support to businesses across all sectors, from sole traders to larger, well established companies.
We put great emphasis on a long-term relationship-led approach to banking and are committed to providing businesses with a service that goes beyond day-to-day banking facilities.
We recognise the importance of working closely with our customers so we can fully understand their needs and we are actively looking to meet their funding requirements, whether it is to launch a new venture, improve liquidity or support expansion. We remain committed to Scottish businesses and continue to provide a range of funding options.
Keen to demonstrate our continued assistance for business customers, as part of the wider Lloyds Banking Group we launched the 2012 SME Charter in November 2009. The Charter sets out a clear three year commitment, detailing how we will help firms grow as the economy continues to improve.
The measures we announced as part of the Charter will help provide companies with the confidence to do business. We have made commitments under three broad dimensions: encouraging enterprise, access to finance and clearer pricing.
Access to the right resources is crucial and our website is packed full of information to help you navigate a course through the current climate. We have dedicated guides, expert guidance and real life business stories.
