"Been a Barclays Business account holder for eighteen months and have not either been engaged with them or contacted them even though there was tens of thousands of pounds in the account. Recently I asked for a loan of 50k on a new business and I have unencumbered collateral of 1.5 million. The advisor over two telephone calls could not get the concept of the business....pathetic, the last straw was to come back in two or three years.....laughable as though any business would want a loan after this period. To cap it all today 040319 I received a standard letter as a sixty plus person that in view of your business experience or and proprietors does not provide sufficient evidence to support your application. The decision also relates to your company’s ability to repay the requested borrowing. Barclays do not want new businesses to ask for loans, they are a lousy shower. Will now close all my accounts with them. PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT USE BARCLAYS."
