Reviews for Fixed Rate Business Savings 6 Month

(49 reviews)

  • Simple and Quick herbalwoman

    I was looking to put my money into a business account that gave me a good return without being tied up for length of time or with penalties should I need the funds before I planned to withdraw. All simple and quick to do on line so saving valuable time. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

  • Just what i needed for my small business rodg

    I have been dealing with Aldermore for over 12 months and have found the experience exceptionally easy.Interest is paid the same date every month easy to open the account easy to maintain, I would recommend 100 per cent.

  • Account opening procedures

    Just opened a Business Deposit Account, together with accounts at various other banks. Aldermore were the only ones who allowed the whole process to take place on-line, without the need to obtain copies of passports, bank statements etc, so very straightforward and easy. As the account has only just been opened, can't comment on ongoing service levels etc

  • Delivered where others failed tangoromeo

    With the best part of a year's earnings sitting in a partly dormant business account, my "high street" business bank could offer me an insulting 0.05%. Simple on-line research showed Aldermore to be offering the best rate of return. A really quick application then saw me move the money into the Aldemore account within days of first seeing it. Now I just wait for the interest to come flooding in!

  • There is little else out there but this does suit my needs for six months Agedabia

    I have used Aldermore before and found its function and efficient and uncomplicated. Return rate is low but there is limited competition but it suits my needs for the time being and, should rates increase towards the end of the year I would expect to continue to use Aldermore provided they match or better any rival.

Reviews for Fixed Rate Business Savings 1 Year

  • So far, so good - simple and quick Greenwich

    Having sunk to derisory interest rates on business savings accounts at 2 High Street banks, I was looking for somewhere paying a decent rate in today's context where everything could be done online. Interest rates will rise, so a 1-year Fix was what I wanted for spare capital. The bonus for me was the availability of the Easy account where I can keep my working capital with online transfers to and from my current account elsewhere; for a few minutes work once a week I have in effect a current account paying 1%. The setup process and the initial deposits have gone very smoothly, exactly as advertised, and the site is a joy to use.

  • Simple and easy Yorky

    Aldermore offer an excellent and professional service. Staff are polite and helpful. The opening procedure is simple, quick and efficient. Telephone calls are taken promptly and are answered by people that are speaking the same language as I am and also understand the products they are selling. The only small complaint is that I would like a hard copy bond certificate for audit purposes.


    25 Jul 2014

  • I took the roll-over option mr99

    Towards maturity of my previous Aldermore product, the maturity options available to me were spelt out clear clearly. However there was no mention in the online literature of the interest rate on the roll-over account, and so I was suspicious. It needed a quick call to Aldermore to clarify that the roll-over option carried the same interest rate as their newly advertised account.. so I went for it. Of course the rate could and should be better, but it is competitive.

  • Online account and txfr in minutes - no hassles StarConsultant

    All words of praises for this bank's systems put in place that lets customers open a fixed rate business savings account and transfer money - all within minutes. I strongly think this is the way modern banking should be.

  • Surprisingly smooth application process RSGC

    The big banks could really learn from aldermore. The entire online application process was the smoothest and most efficient I have experienced from any financial services company so far.


    15 Jul 2014

  • Easy to set up Queenie

    I thought the online application was very good and extremely easy and quick to set up. The one small thing I didn like is that it throws you out very quickly.

  • Excellent advice and service
