Conclusion

TAB Bank offers nice account options and has significant advantages, including great interest rates, low fees and minimums. However, those wishing to take advantage of this institution will have to meet a number of requirements related to daily balances and account activity.

The other thing to remember is that the company has very limited fee-free ATM access and is operating online. If you have other means of accessing fast cash, that will not be a problem. But if you want to deal with a bank that gives you fast and free access to your cash, you may need to look for other options.

Their verification department drives me crazy. Some lady called me and did not say anything but was just laughing and talking to her co-workers. It was a very inappropriate conversation for the bank worker calling her customers. I called back, they hold me on the phone for a very long time and got this same lady 3 times. She “pretended” she cannot hear me. The whole experience is a waste of my time. Do not deal with this company. Bad experience. This company needs to find better employees, otherwise, they will lose their clients very soon

The whole process is very straightforward. To get a business loan, I contacted their representative over the phone. He was amazing to deal with. I received a loan within a couple of days and they later called back to find out I was happy with the service provided.
