Mark Liversidge secured a £200,000 loan to purchase Park Garage with the help of Yorkshire Bank.

The purchase will offer him security for his family-run business after trading for over 20 years, and ensure his son’s succession upon his retirement.

As a small business owner, Mark also benefits from Yorkshire Bank’s small business offering of free business banking for 25 months.

Shelley Fox, business banking manager said: “We’re delighted that we were able to help Mark and especially glad that he was able to benefit from our tailored small business offering to secure the future of his family business. We look forward to his continued success.”

Mark Liversidge said: “My son and I are thrilled that we have been able to use Yorkshire Bank funding to make this purchase, their service was wonderful throughout – we didn’t know banks could be like that. We wouldn’t have been able to do this without them.”

Business Direct offers free business banking for 25 months to start ups and established small businesses with a turnover of under £2 million who switch to Yorkshire Bank.
