I run two small companies, one established and one quite new. I was disappointed with the hassle of setting up a new account for my new business (same directors, same address etc). It was all very long winded and difficult. I use the online service daily, and the phone service once or twice a year. Once the account is established, it works very well. Moving money around is easy. 30p per transaction is unwelcome for a small business but not a deal breaker. The online service is occasionally... (read more)

This is a review of the Bank of Scotland/Halifax telephone support services. I tried to give a 0 for overall rating, but this is not allowed.
I recently tried to perform a credit transfer from Bank of Scotland to another Bank.
Setting up the payment was not a problem. Trying to transfer funds using this payment was altogther different.
My online account was instantly suspended.
A phone call to the online support helpdesk resulted in being told my account was suspended because I was using a... (read more)

Recently switch the BoS from another bank. Found the online service easy to use, like the fact you don't need a card reader to carry out the simplest task!
Excellent service when you phone the helpdesk as well.
Would definitely recommend to others.

Ok, I've been with BoS for a long time. It's a basic service and has more or less managed over the last few years. Recently it has really bombed. I have had online services to established accounts disrupted twice over the last two weekends and accessing the Uk based call centre hasn't been easy with dropped calls. Net result, pun intended, I'm moving elsewhere. Bos need to sort out their security software and comms. (read more)

Overall I think Bank of Scotland's online banking is quite good - it tells you the balance, what transactions have taken place etc. in an easy to read form. It also gives you an *up to date* available balance unlike some other banks' online services.
Only complaint is it could be a bit nicer looking, in some places it feels as if the designers are stuck in 1999 (read more)

Trying to tell you that I have presented necessary documents to validate my bone fides to my local branch last Wednesday (despite being a BOS customer for over 40 years. I find that my new savings account has yet to be activated. As a famous Marxist philosopher said over 100 years ago "the best one can expect from a complex bureaucracy is bumbling inefficiency"; perhaps he anticipated a building society taking over a bank!

After 400 transactions the Bank of Scotland internet banking system deletes every record. Yes every single one - other than those in the past 5 days. As such you are left with no transaction history, and they have no way of restoring the deleted transactions. Incredible. All they offer is a printed version of the deleted transactions which is posted to you. (read more)

If you want to waste your time and money being placed on international hold by largely anonymous call centres, or at best never speak to the same person twice and repeat yourself multiple times, then the Bank of Scotland is the bank for you. Greetings Shirleen, Charleen, and you all.
