Will I need an accountant?
We provide you with lots of inclusive services and tools to keep accounting costs down.
For ongoing business or accounting advice, we have a relationship with Westbury Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors. You can contact Westbury on +44 (0)207 253 7272 or use their contact form.
I live overseas. Can I apply for a UK bank account?
- use the account you already have in your country
- open a new account in the UK
- open a UK sterling account in your country
However, 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.
We offer banking assistance for the leading UK banks in our Banking International package only. Should you not choose the package, you could search the internet to find a suitable UK bank.
Please note: the Barclays and TSB business bank referrals we offer are available to UK residents only - this means you must physically live in the UK. Unfortunately, overseas residents cannot apply.
