Bank Accounts

European Bank Accounts

One of the first and most crucial tasks that you will need to undertake in order to establish a European company is to open a European bank account in your country of choice. Opening European bank accounts sounds easy, it should be easy… but frequently it isn’t. In fact, sometimes it can feel like certain banks go out of their way to make it difficult!

The Long Walk To The Bank

In order to open Euro bank accounts, quite a number of banks require applicants to visit the bank in person. That’s fine if you’re a French company and you want to open an account in Paris. However, it’s not quite as convenient for those of us living outside France. Other banks insist that you provide them with a letter of introduction, duly translated and certified, from your bank at home. Again, this is great 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 your European company up and running as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible.
