1 Hour Tax Consultation

Our UK based tax and banking partners will be able to advise you on all aspects involved in running your business in a tax efficient manner, including VAT, Corporation Tax and UK employment taxes.

Assistance with opening a UK business bank account

All UK Limited companies require a UK bank account to start trading. Our Bank Account Opening Team have built up strong personal relationships with the leading UK banks in London and will start the process of securing the right UK bank account for your business immediately. They will arrange an introductory meeting with a leading UK bank, attend the initial face-to-face meeting with you and help you complete the relevant application forms.

This will significantly cut the time it takes to open your bank account in the UK and reduces the risk of being declined by the bank. If you are declined, many UK banks will not allow you to reapply for 6 months.

You do not need a UK residential address to open a UK bank account for your company, however you will need to attend the bank meeting in person and bring your ID documents with you. Please note, if you are outside the EU you may need to provide a business visa. Without a UK bank account, it is unlikely that the UK VAT office will issue you with a VAT number.

Optional International Package Renewal

What will be discussed during my 1 hour consultation with Tax experts?

The consultation will cover VAT, Corporation Tax and UK employment taxes and is also your chance to find out how you can best structure your business to ensure you take advantage of tax savings available to you.

Do I need to come to the UK to open a bank account?

In most cases, there is a requirement for the director/shareholders to come and meet the bank manager in person in the UK (London). If you are unable to travel to the UK in the immediate future, our banking partners will be able to discuss your requirements with you.

What documentation do I need to bring to the bank meeting?

Before you attend the bank meeting you will be required to produce a photo ID (valid passport or driving licence). You will also be required to produce two forms of proof of your current home address (such as a recent utility bill or personal bank statement which is less than three months old). The documents must be translated into English. Please note, customers outside the EU may need to provide a business visa.

Are there any requirements to open a bank account as a non-UK resident?

Yes, the following terms and conditions apply:

  • You must have a legitimate business carrying out commercial/trading activity and must not be a vehicle for tax saving
  • You must have a UK customer or supplier or have full intentions of entering UK market with marketing your products or services in the UK
  • Director/s and beneficial owners will need to travel to the UK to meet our tax and banking partners and the bank manager before the account can be opened.
  • You will need to bring photo ID and proof of your local residential address with you (valid passport or driving licence) and proof of your current home address (such as a recent utility bill or bank/credit card statement which is less than three months old, or a council tax bill) for the bank meeting.
  • Your business must not be within the Financial Services sector.
  • If you are outside the EU, you may need to provide a business visa.

Which bank will I be introduced to?

Our tax and banking partners work with all the leading banks in the UK.

How long will it take to open a bank account?

Once all documents have been provided to the bank, you can expect your bank account to be opened within 2 to 4 weeks.

Is a bank account guaranteed?

The assistance fee for opening a UK bank account does not guarantee the opening of an account. The final decision lies with the bank. If you meet all the requirements outlined in the T&Cs, but we are unable to facilitate the opening of a bank account, you will be entitled to a full refund of the fee relating to the bank account opening. Please note this Money Back Guarantee does not extend to any other out of pocket expenses such as travel and accommodation.
