BHETA finance

Welcome to BHETA’s trade association bank, the only trade association owned bank in the UK, Bira Bank. Bira bank was established in 1955 and, has over 60 years’ experience of assisting members with their saving and borrowing requirements.

As part of a trade association, Bira bank recognises the need to establish trust with its users and delivers this through the personal relationship that will develop between the member and the bank.

It has a range of deposit accounts for both personal and business needs and offers attractive rates of interest to savers. It competes in the marketplace on loans and offers members a range of finance options from vehicle and equipment loans to personal and working capital loans, foreign exchange and mortgages.

Bira bank are part of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme which protects savers in UK banks up to £85,000 for free. Bira bank prides itself on operating a personal service that is easy to access and simple to understand.

I’m proud to support the launch of the bira bank service to all BHETA members. It makes perfect sense as many BHETA members are also members of bira and have been enjoying the services and products the bank offers for many years. Whether looking to invest in your business or looking for competitive depositor rates that simply aren’t available on the high street, the bank team offer a service which is reminiscent of times when banking was personal, fast and efficient”

Vin Vara, Bira National President and owner of the Toolshop Group

I am delighted that BHETA and Bira have collaborated on this joint initiative. It makes perfect sense and I am confident that BHETA members will ultimately benefit from the services and products on offer”.

Roger Morgan-Grenville, BHETA President
