“I have been with Barclays for over 40 years and feel...”

Written on: 17/02/2010

I have been with Barclays for over 40 years and feel that they are dealing with me very shoddily. The only times they ever want to make contact is to tell me how they are increasing my charges and indeed today advised that they now require a personal guarantee for my modest overdraft facilities. I have large mostly ungeared personal assets and it suits me to run a small business overdraft ususally running between 5 and 15% of turnover. I have had enough of them and will now seek to move my… Read Full Review

Well what do you expect, because barclays are employing mobile phone salesmen, double glazing salesman and any other salesmen you can think of. The so called 'manager' have little or no experience of the finacial world or business for that matter. The basis of employment, is purely to hit number targets and it doesn't matter how that is doen- need I say more.

Written on: 27/01/2010

Sick and tired of dealing with Barclay staff that seem to be incapable of doing their job to a satisfactory standard. Their fees are high for the services they provide.
They continually put a stop on my business card when trying to buy things for the business over the internet and have never received a courtesy call when they have done so.
Customer service and overall value for money are lacking… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/01/2010

I formed a company and went to open account with Barclays, they asked to take up one of their services with up front fee and monthly charges, I told them I didn't need them, and two days later received a letter saying they could not open my account. I am so glad that that I found out so early true nature of what the rest of our relationship would have been… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/01/2010

Been with Barclays for over 15 years experiencing good and bad times in my business. Only reason I've not changed is because I couldn't be bothered with all the paperwork etc.

Help is there when you don't need it and not available when you do. So fed up with attitudes that even though the business is quite stable presently, am investigating offers from other banks for the first time… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/09/2009

Assured when I started with Barclays that all Business Accounts were handled in UK with no Indian call centres used. Immediately I discovered all IT was handled in India. Later I dicovered that ALL business goes through India. Getting hold of your business manager means hanging on at the Indian call centre until they can track him down, after asking for your account and pass details 3 times... there must be a better way!!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/09/2009

Very simply, the worst bank I have ever dealt with. I cannot begin to explain the trouble that I have had! I am a small new business that has grown beyond expectations, the bank simply did not want to help and further more have created problems. I am unable to make international payments! No overdraft facility though I have £300K worth of orders to process! I am simply scratching the surface, I do not know where I am going but as long as it's under the mattress its in a better place. I… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/07/2009

My busy small business account experience with Barclays has been a comedy from the start. If I was a scriptwriter I could make a fortune doing a sitcom from my experience.
I came in on a Fast Track via my solicitor, which actually delayed setup of my account. It took four weeks to 'fast track' and 'Priority!' my account setup.
I got sent pin codes but no cards. Then the cards came but were eaten by the machine when i used them. Then they sent cards, but no pin code.
My local business manager… Read Full Review

I have been banking with barclays for over 20 years. Recently opened a new business account with them.

Within 24hrs i received a letter from Barclays saying they are going to close my personal and business account and i should withdraw all funds within 2 weeks.

Written on: 14/05/2009 by loopyeroe (1 review written)

After having my personal account with Barclays for 14 years, when I needed a business account I looked to them first. They were also offering a good deal with the automated tariff. They were awful from the start, others have mentioned similar problems to myself so I'm pleased to hear I'm not alone. I won't rant but wanted to give an idea of what I went through whilst with Barclays. I was sent my bank card but no pin number, when I called I was told one hadn't been ordered, they will get one… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/03/2009

I spent 10 months with a Barclays business account, I have had my personal account with them for 14 years without a problem. I have had nothing but problems since I opened the account, I don't think I have managed a month without something going wrong. They started by sending my card but not ordering the pin number, they have closed accounts in error, cancelled cards in error, I had 3 cards in the first 6 months. They registered me as trading as someone I had never heard of & then told me I… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/02/2009 by big69bobby (1 review written)

I run (on my own) my small print and design business from home. I have two Barclays Business Bank Accounts; one a current, for day to day transactions with a decent overdraft facility (never used except on the odd occasion) and the other a business premium which is hardly ever empty. I bank online which is perfect. I run a very tight ship, if by chance the current did go overdrawn due to time gaps, there is an automatic overnight top up facility of £1000 to that account from the other. I spent… Read Full Review
