This paper presents a test for perfect competition in the deposit market of the UK retailbanking sector. The model employed draws from the NEIO technique forwarded by Hannan and Liang (1993). The test is applied to a sample of 8 UK retail banks between 1992-97. The presence of perfect competition is rejected for all banks. The empirical evidence does not support the qualitative evidence of increasing competitiveness amongst UK retail banks.
