Make the right decision about your bank account for your business, whether you're just starting out or more established. UK Finance has collaborated with UK banking providers to compile some guidance about what you need before applying for a business bank account.
Such regulations apply only to registered businesses with a turnover of less than £ 6.5 million, have a clearly specified ownership structure and all the owners of the company reside in the UK.
As a Non-UK resident, you can also get a UK high street business bank account only if you have at least one nominee director in your company from the UK.
