UK business banking
We have partnered with Wise (formerly TransferWise) to offer our non-UK resident customers a UK business account to send, spend, and receive multiple currencies with the real exchange rate.
You will get your own UK account number and sort code, Eurozone IBAN, and US account and routing number in minutes, regardless of where you are in the world.
Prestigious London address services
Also included in the package price is the use of our Central London address for one year. We will provide you with 3 address services; Registered Office, Service Address, and Business Address.
Company maintenance service
Other benefits include free access to our secure Online Company Manager, where you can view, maintain and change your company details with Companies House for the lifetime of your company.
How much will I save by choosing this package?
If you were to buy the items included in this package individually, it would cost a total of £997. Therefore, at a discounted price of £400, you will enjoy a huge saving of £597.
Non-UK Resident Banking Options
Through our extensive experience in working with non-UK residents, we understand the problems many have obtaining UK business banking facilities. Please find below our best options:
Wise UK Business Account*
The simplest and quickest business banking solution for non-UK residents, and so we have included this option within our non-UK residents’ package.
It provides international business banking with worldwide coverage, allowing you to send money to 160+ countries, and receive and hold 40+ currencies.
After your company is formed using our website, we will send you a link to create your business account and you will very quickly receive your UK bank sort code and account number.
There is a fixed one-time onboarding fee of £45.00 (or equivalent in local currency). Account openings are subject to approval.
*Wise are currently reporting large delays in the opening of new business accounts. You can wait to be onboarded by Wise; alternatively, we have provided you with an alternative banking solution from Payoneer which you can sign up for straight away. After your company has been formed, you will be sent an Order Fulfilment email containing links to both Payoneer and Wise.
Apostilled Document Service
Many non-UK residents choose to open a bank account in their own country as opposed to in the UK; however, a bank in another country will normally require you to legalise or ‘apostille’ your UK company documents.
Our Apostilled Documents Service can be added on our Checkout page.
** All registered office and service address mail (official government mail) will be scanned and emailed to you free of charge. Business address mail will be forwarded to you at Royal Mail International postal rates plus 15% handling charge.
*** Your printed company documents will be sent to you free of charge by International Business Tracked Delivery Service.
Prefer to order by telephone?
If you are not confident forming your company online – call our friendly team and we will complete your order by telephone.
