Bicknell Business Advisers are TIDE Bank Partners

Mettle is the free business account by NatWest that helps small businesses start, run and grow. It’s built for small businesses, startups, limited companies and sole traders.

Customers can apply for an account in minutes, create and send customised invoices and connect to accounting software to help keep track of their books. The account comes with a UK account number and sort code and an in-app chat feature so that customers can speak to real people when they need help.

Mettle has partnered with FreeAgent which means customers can now sign up for the accounting software through the Mettle app and seamlessly sync all their business transactions.
