Sort out Banking

It is of little use trying to attract business to the Isle of Man when one of the largest obstacles is opening a bank account here. The banks have been regulated out of business and most of the large ones are paralysed with fear of regulation !

Business is being turned away because we do not have a vibrant banking sector largely because of overregulation other jurisdictions are not so ready to cripple themselves in this way !

Why the contribution is important

Having access to banking services is vital for new business.

    Agree, in addition it's almost impossible for residents to obtain credit cards as well, even with M&S!

    Couldn't agree more. The banks have no interest helping small businesses getting off the ground, eight weeks of admin to open a business bank account is not ok.
