More Account Information

New businesses need a corporate account that will allow them to work with their domestic and international clients. However, it has become increasingly difficult for those with Poor Credit status to open a bank account through the usual retail banking channels.

We have partnered with a unique payment solution providing an independent alternative to traditional business banking, offering business accounts and a range of domestic international payment methods, reducing time and hassle and supporting your business’ growth.

Their rates are attractive and offer excellent value for money and their pricing strategy is fixed and transparent with no hidden charges. Your account is easily accessible online and transaction reports can be rapidly downloaded for financial reporting and accountancy requirements. As a web-based account, this can be accessed anywhere and in any time zone worldwide.

Our partner is the only UK agency bank to hold principal membership with both Visa EU and Mastercard Europe which allows them to issue prepaid cards. They are also authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority under the Electronic Money Regulations 2011 for the issuing of electronic money and the provision of payment service, and also members of SWIFT and the UK Payments Council.

No face-to-face meeting is required and accounts can be opened remotely in as little as three days from receipt of the required due diligence documents.

Place your order before 1pm and registration will usually complete the sameday
