I live overseas. Can I apply for a UK bank account?

Yes. To set up a bank account for your business in the UK you can either:

  • use the account you already have in your country
  • open a new account in the UK with us (when purchasing the company formation package)
  • open a UK sterling account in your country
  • search the internet for a suitable bank

If you charge or pay VAT you will need a UK bank account. HMRC will repay any VAT owed to the business directly into the account.

PLEASE NOTE: Our Barclays, TSB and Tide business bank referrals are available to UK residents only - this means you must physically live in the UK. Unfortunately, overseas residents cannot apply.
