XLN Business Services, the London-based small business specialist, has been listed by Deloitte as one of its UK Futures 1000 companies, the businesses that have performed best during the recession.

XLN has had phenomenal growth during the recession as small businesses such as restaurants, florists and newsagents have looked to save money on their business telecoms and utilities. XLN began as a discount phone line and broadband supplier but has expanded it range to provide small businesses with low cost credit and debit card processing, energy, mobile and insurance.

Christian Nellemann, Founder and Group CEO said: “We’re pleased Deloitte have recognised the amazing growth here at XLN. Even more encouraging is the fact we’ve achieved that growth in the face of some of the worst economic conditions this country has experienced. When they’re hard up, small business owners are forced to cut overheads and watch their spending. Many have moved to XLN from their old telecoms, energy and card processing providers because of our cheaper deals and fast, efficient service.”
