Regulation is here to protect us.

From jzjzd on 24.04.2017 at 05:01

Think about a theater where you are obliged by law to have fire extinguishers and all the other stuff that protects or helps you in case of a fire(exits, sprinklers, ... ).

You may never need to use them but the regulation says you have to have them.

Let's imagine there is no regulation regarding fires.
In this case each theater would have to take care of this and manage it as they please, because of the probability of a fire occurring it's very low it would not be efficient for them provide, and because there is no regulation in use they don't have to.

But if a fire is to occurs you can see how in that isolated case and you would be in the building you can see how you would wish for regulation then.

Regulation is here to protect the most of use.

I also want a business bank account, but some how that's not in the best interest of the majority.

Business accounts

Fidor Bank should make Business accounts available only if regulators can guarantee they will not impose unreasonable fines on the Bank.
Most small businesses in the UK today are unable to reach their full potentials due to the unreasonable regulatory burden that government and regulators have imposed on Banks. Any little mistake made by a Bank could lead to the Bank paying fines that run into millions of pounds.
I think we have come to a point where we have to ask questions about why Banks are made to pay these fines and not the people committing the offence.
Why can’t the liability be on the person or the business breaking the rules or committing the money laundering offence?
The FCA relies on fines paid by banks in order to exist, don’t you think it is in the interest of the FCA to maintain the current system at the expense of innocent small businesses and individuals that will never be able to prosper due to the ongoing senseless denial and withdrawal of banking facilities from them?
We need new Banks that will give small businesses access to banking facilities and allow them to reach their full potentials.
Is Fido bank able to do this?

I'm not quite sure what you are trying to say here, its the regulators that make the rules and the banks have to comply with these rules, so its not up to Fidor Bank?

I’m blaming the regulators and not Fido Bank. Most small businesses will never be able to expand unless regulators change some of their senseless rules and behaviour.

Hi, the cent you is the same things as TipMe. In Fidor Germany, it is named centyou and in Fidor UK, TipMe. Maybe it should be called pennyme?

Would a Fidor Business account be something you are after?

From JoelDalais on 26.01.2017 at 21:04

Run a business? Or interested in starting one? Would a Fidor Business Account interest you? This group is to determine interest and for you to tell us (and each other) what facilities you would like in a business account.

PLEASE NOTE - This group is no way implies that business accounts are coming soon (I have no ETA), this group is just to gauge interest, desires, potential facilities and discuss the subject.

The Co-op is a mess, latest offer £1 in exchange for the bank and some loyalty points in their grocers :-)

Would open a business account if available. Would need incoming/outgoing SEPA + debit card.

Both I, and several of my colleagues would be interested in operating a main business account with Fidor! Would be great if Fidor launched this service.
