Business Banking

Preferential rates, great savings

We’ve negotiated preferential business banking rates with our service partner HSBC, just for you.

There are so many great benefits on offer, including:

  • Exclusive preferential business banking rates
  • FREE business banking for 18 months (as a new HSBC customer) *1
  • FREE 24/7 online banking*2
  • No monthly account maintenance fee
  • FREE ATM withdrawals in the UK (some independent operators may apply a charge)
  • No standard transaction charges on your account excluding any international payments
  • Access to HSBC’s telephone banking services*3

We’ve negotiated with our approved service partner HSBC to help bring down the cost of your business banking, and you can now enjoy preferential rates and significant savings against their Small Business Tariff.

As a new HSBC customer you’ll even get the first 18 months for free.

As part of your bira membership, you can also join our bira member card processing service with Global Payments. By doing that you’ll benefit from next day crediting with cleared funds. This is available when you sign up to both the bira business banking tariff from HSBC, and the Global Payments bira card processing rates scheme.
