  • What is the Best Small Business Bank? Revolut, Tide, HSBC or Metro?

Have you also been looking for the best bank for your small business? Steve, too and now, he’s got a clear winner!

Steve has tried four different business banking apps in the last few years to find the best for all the small business requirements.

In this episode, he shares the one that comes out in front and also explains why.


The business banking world for small businesses can often be archaic, clunky and backward in its approach and operation.

HSBC is difficult to get an account with; getting one can take three months. Metro required visits to the actual bank to set up, and Tide was a difficult process to complete. Revolut was by far the simplest to apply for.

One of the key functionalities you require as a small business is also the ability to authorise other people to operate the account. HSBC allows for this but is not ideal. Tide does not even allow for this. Metro facility is long, archaic, difficult and expensive. Revolut was extraordinarily easy.

Revolut also allows multiple currencies to be managed by allowing you to open multiple accounts under one app. Their charges are also less, and their exchange rates are better.

The authorisation is achieved using biometrics within the Revolut app, which speeds things up tremendously and also allows for app integration.

Revolut offers ‘one-off’ payment cards. You can also create cards you can send to staff with authorisation for one fixed payment. The best small business bank!

💬 ‘And without a doubt, the winner out of those four, I’m not going to hold you in suspense for the entire of this episode for you to find out what this is, the winner without a shadow of a doubt is Revolut.’

💬 ‘HSBC shut down entirely over the COVID period. You could not even apply for an account. It took me three months to open an account.’

💬 ‘It’s pretty painless with Revolut. It’s not as quick as it could be, but it’s actually not too bad. I did that remotely, I live in Sweden, and my staff members live in the UK.’

💬 ‘I’ve got a US dollars account. I’ve also got a Euro account. I’ve got a British Pounds account as well.’
