Business lending: September Deals of the Month

Our September Deals of the Month range from a £15,800 loan to support a growing candle’s business moving to a new premise, to a £3.5 million loan to transform a hotel into a boutique establishment.

Each month, we profile five of the key SMEs banking deals supported by RBS and NatWest business banking and commercial banking teams around the UK.
