To support our global company formation services, Healy Consultants can assist our Clients to open an international corporate bank account in the country of their choice. Our client is not required to visit the bank to open an international corporate bank account, as Healy Consultants will prepare the account opening documentation and attend a bank interview on your behalf. We are one of the few global professional firms that can provide this service.
Global banks continue to tighten corporate bank account opening procedures, their internal compliance departments completing more thorough due diligence of Clients. Consequently, our Clients should expect the bank account approval period to take up to 4 weeks. Furthermore, global banks now require evidence of proof of business in the country where the corporate bank account will be, including sales contracts or lease agreement.
Opening an international corporate account has become increasingly difficult since 11 September 2001. Banks are requesting increasing amounts of due diligence information related to the company’s activities, as well personal information about shareholders and directors. Opening an international corporate bank account is therefore also time-consuming, taking many months in some jurisdictions.
Please refer to the table below to view details of the various international corporate bank account options available around the world.
