How to open a business bank account in France, Europe, America & Asia

One of the first and most crucial tasks you’ll need to undertake during the company formation process will be to open a bank account in your country of choice.

It sounds easy, it should be easy - but frequently it isn’t for a lone entrepreneur with no experience of a country’s banking system. In fact, sometimes it can feel like certain banks go out of their way to make it difficult for foreign business people.

For example, a number of banks require applicants to visit the premises in order to open their bank account, while other banks insist that you provide them with a letter of introduction, duly translated and certified from your bank at home. This is fine if you are fluent in the local language and have a good understanding of what’s required, but cumbersome and expensive if you aren’t and don’t! There are also a number of banks that won’t even talk to you unless your annual turnover is in excess of €1 million. This isn’t much help if you want to get the company formation process started as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible.

This is where a company formation agent comes in and sorts out all these problems for you.
