We are doing a citation audit and some of the main sites in our market (UK) dont allow you to have multiple block capital letters in a business name.

Our business name is an acronym like "XYZ Services" (not the actual name). Its written this way on the majority of our profiles, but some sites dont allow it, the nearest we can get on those sites is :

- "X Y Z Services" (with a space between each letter)
OR
- "Xyz Services".

Which one is preferable, given the circumstances ?

Just use the lower case version. I highly doubt Google drills down to case level when it comes to citation accuracy.
