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.

East Midlands

Amount lent

£1 million financial package from NatWest

The new premises enabled the merger of the accountancy and business advisory firm’s three city centre offices into one, bringing a huge benefit to clients, business and people. Easy access to East Midlands Airport has also improved PKF Copper Parry’s access to a growing national and international client base.
