The Financial Conduct Authority last year hired Mazars and consultancy Promontory to review the turnaround unit’s treatment of small business customers in financial difficulty and consider allegations of poor practice.

Lawrence Tomlinson, who acted as an adviser to former business secretary Vince Cable, had accused RBS of systematically taking money out of viable small businesses.

PwC and RBS declined to comment.
