United Kingdom

corporate Bank Account

The United Kingdom is a global business hub renowned for its financial stability, skilled workforce, and strategic location. London, its capital, is a leading financial center, with a concentration of top-tier banks and investment firms. The country offers a well-established legal framework and strong protections for intellectual property, making it a favorable environment for businesses. The UK's membership in the Commonwealth and its access to the European market (as of my knowledge cutoff in January 2022) provide a gateway for international trade. However, businesses should stay informed about potential changes related to Brexit and evolving trade agreements.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK), is a state located in the northwest of Continental Europe. Its territory is formed geographically by the island of Great Britain, the northeast of the island of Ireland and small adjacent islands. Northern Ireland is the only part of the country with a land border, which separates it from the Republic of Ireland.

Great Britain delimits to the north and the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the east by the North Sea, to the south by the English Channel and to the west by the Irish Sea.

The UK is a unitary state comprised of four constituent nations, Scotland, Wales, England, and Northern Ireland, and several overseas territories. Populated by more than 65 million people.

The capital, London, on the River Thames, is home of British Parliament, Big Ben, and the 11th-century Tower. Its official legal tender currency is the Pound Sterling (GBP), being the fourth most traded currency in the international exchange market behind the US$, the euro and the Japanese yen.

In 2016, a majority of 51.9 percent of voters in the United Kingdom chose to exit the European Union. The UK officially departed from the EU in 2020. The EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement took effect on May 1, 2021.

The United Kingdom operates as a parliamentary monarchy with King Charles III serving as its head of state, succeeding Queen Elizabeth II, who held the title of the longest-reigning and longest-living British monarch until her passing on September 8, 2022. King Charles also fulfills the role of the Head of State for the other fourteen nations within the Commonwealth of Nations, establishing a personal union between the United Kingdom and these countries.

It has a parliamentary government, based on the Westminster system, which has been emulated around the world, one of the legacies of the British Empire. The Parliament of the United Kingdom, which meets in the Palace of Westminster has two chambers: the House of Commons (elected by the people) and the House of Lords. Any law passed by parliament requires real consent to become law. The fact that the decentralized parliament in Scotland and the assemblies in Northern Ireland and Wales are not sovereign bodies and can be abolished by the British Parliament makes the latter the most important legislative body in the country.

The United Kingdom is one of the world’s most developed countries. It is the sixth largest economy and the second largest in Europe after Germany, and ahead of France.

Its technologically developed industry is comprised mainly of machinery, transport equipment (vehicles, railways, and aeronautics) and chemicals. The UK is also the second European producer of oil and gas, ahead of Norway.

The services sector is the major GDP contributor, which includes the stock market, banking services, and insurance companies. The London Stock Exchange is the second largest financial market after New York.

Its agriculture is highly mechanized, its main productions are potatoes, beets, wheat, and barley. However, it only accounts for only 1% of GDP and only 2% of purchasing power parity. Livestock is significant, especially sheep and cattle, being a large European producer of milk and its derivatives.

Services & Fees

Our banking support service is not just a mere introduction to the bank. We assist you in filling out the business questionnaires appropriately and help you understand and provide business details, commercial information and purpose/use of the bank account that a given bank wants to know in order to approve your account application. Banks want certainty and clarity on how the account will be used. Everything must be watertight. We will work with you to make sure there is minimal 'back and forth' and a smooth account opening process.

Bank Account opening requirements are subject to change at the discretion of the bank. There might be additional fees charged by the bank itself. Bank account opening is not guaranteed and is subject to the bank policies and compliance department. There might be restrictions on UBO nationalities, business activities and/or jurisdictions. A refund is available if the account is not successfully opened subject to our terms of service (20% to partly cover service and payment processing and administrative costs apply).
