Overseas Bank Account

Once we have incorporated your company, we can assist you in opening a business bank account. We will liaise with the bank on your behalf throughout the application process. There is no requirement for you to visit the bank or travel to our office.

We offer introductions to Euro-Pacific and Choice Bank for all your corporate banking requirements. The process can take up to 2 weeks for completion and costs £650. Our fee is inclusive of all courier costs and a full set of apostilled company documents, as required by the bank.

Both banks offer full banking facilities, online account access, credit/cash cards and accounts in all major currencies - Euros, British Pound Sterling, US/Canadian Dollar and Japanese Yen.
