I recently started my own plumbing & heating business after several years of working for other companies.

I wasn’t sure where to go to set it up. Steve sorted me with an accountant, a bank account with the working capital I needed and a van lease.

Nothing was too much trouble. If your starting your own business I’d 100% recommend you have a chat with him.

I recently incorporated from a Sole Trader to a Limited Company. I wasn’t sure which bank to go to and who to contact.

Steve used his contacts to get me the deal I was looking for which met all my requirements. He met me first at my premises to discuss how this could be arranged and even sat on the meeting with the Bank.

What I didn’t realise was how much Steve could save me on bank charges. I would definitely recommend Steve.

My accountant advised me to go Limited and get a card machine to accept card payments. I didn’t have the time to research all the banks offers to find the best deals. Steve did this for me. He liaised with my accountant, provided me with all the information I needed and even set up the meeting with the bank.

He also arranged for a consultant to visit me at my work premises to discuss my card payment options. All the deals Steve arranged were excellent value and specific to me and my business. I highly recommend Steve if you want to discuss or get a second opinion on your business banking arrangements. He takes the hassle away of a time consuming job.

201608_steve_bankingguru-0124I have known Steve around 8 years, first as a customer and then for the last 7 years as my business bank manager

I have always found Steve very approachable, fair and most importantly good at his job.

I wish him all the best for his new venture

Neil Mellor, Mellor’s Butchers, Uppermill

Stephen has always been my “go-to” guy for any queries regarding banking be it foreign currency accounts, loan finance, new account openings etc.  He is knowledgeable, approachable and most importantly gets things done.

He does all of this whilst never losing sight of the end goal for the client; so if he cannot help or thinks that what you are asking is not appropriate for your client(s) then he will tell you.

I find such commercial outlooks from bankers to be quite rare.
