UK business bank accounts for EU resident directors

Regarding the bank account, please note that the UK banks are very strict with non-UK residents. However we may be able to help you open UK bank account.

Our fee is £500 plus vat if applicable (we will assist you from the beginning till your account is opened) . However please note that account opening is not always guaranteed. In considering applications, the bank take account of a number of factors, including nature of business, geographical location and conventional business risks and value. They will want to see that the business is operating in the UK. If the bank decides to consider the application, the director/shareholder of the company will need to visit the bank for identification.

Our fee will only be due if the bank account is opened successfully. A 50% upfront deposit is required for this service. However, we will refund your deposit if the bank account gets declined (only £100 will be deducted for administration costs). If your business bank account is successfully opened then the remaining 50% fee will be due.  We have opened UK business bank accounts for many EU resident directors with a UK company.


There is no legal requirement to open a UK bank account 

Please note that it’s not mandatory for a UK company to have a UK bank account. If the UK bank rejects a bank account application, we also offer bank accounts in the following countries:
