BankSearch approached the British Bankers Association, in November 2007, with a proposal to create a database about new business start-ups in the UK. We have been working with the BBA and their Small Firms Advisory Panel, ever since.

Working with the main banks providing small business services, this new data source from BankSearch has built on the BBA’s general monitoring of bank support, to identify the characteristics of new small businesses
