    Hi,

    I'm about to start offering SEO to clients this summer. An advisor let me know today that financial help is available to those with a disability, but I need to set up a business account first to qualify..

    Can you tell me where's the best place are to get one in the UK?

    I've been told that Santander is pretty good. Any other options?

    I use Nat West. Quite easy to apply online I think. They did a 1 year free of charges thing too.

    HSBC is your best bet. You will have a business manager at hand to help you with all your questions.

    What about all other banks, they mostly now owned by RBS.

    I'm with HSBC. Account was set up very quickly but I have had a personal account with them for 20 years. You get 18 months free banking initially which is good but now I can only pay 20 cheques a month in for free and I get charged if I pay in cash which is annoying. No cost for electronic transfers so try to encourage people to use that.

    Have heard Santander is free plus you can pay in at a Post Office with Santander if there isn't a branch near you.
