NALC meets with Barclays on banking
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) met with the Barclays Know Your Customer team and other senior Barclays representatives last week on 22 September 2023.
At the meeting, Barclays provided several contact details that would help local (parish and town) councils who are Barclays customers and may have been miscategorised by Barclays or who have been having difficulties with mandates, signatories, online banking in general, or money laundering rules. The meeting follows the Northamptonshire County Association of Local Councils meeting with the Unity Trust Bank Know Your Customer team.
This month, NALC will meet with UK Finance, the trade body for banks, and continue to liaise closely with Action for Communities in Rural England on rural banking issues affecting local councils.
NALC is also developing a dedicated banking webpage to launch in the coming months.
