Detailed description of the stages of the account opening process*

STAGE I

we offer you several banks/EMIs to choose from, depending on the activities of the company, turnover, possible account balances, and residence of the owners

we then send a preliminary enquiry to 3 (three) banks/EMIs of your choice with a brief description of your company’s activities, but without providing the company documents or disclosing the names of business partners or personal data of the owners, which will allow making a preliminary assessment of the chances of account opening

based on the feedback from the banks/EMIs, we prepare a detailed description of all the options available and highlight those suitable for your concrete case

Our fee for the service is USD 500. This fee will later be set off against the account opening fee.

STAGE II

we then send an enhanced enquiry to one of the banks/EMIs of your choice, now providing all the information about the company and its owners, including the source of funds and names of the counterparties, and we obtain from the banks/EMIs their preliminary consent to open an account

based on the feedback from the bank/EMI, we prepare a detailed description of all further steps of the account opening process

The fee for this stage is USD 1000, which will later be set off in the main invoice.

STAGE III

you choose the option that suits you best (or several ones at once, because we always recommend applying for accounts with at least 2 banks), and we send you an invoice for payment minus the amounts paid previously

we help you to collect the necessary package of documents, as well as fill in all the necessary forms required to open an account

if necessary, we arrange an interview for the account signatory/beneficial owner of the company at the bank of your choice, and we also accompany you at this meeting

we prepare you for the interview, going again through the list of necessary documents and accentuating necessary points; we also instruct you in detail about what questions the bankers usually ask and what they want to hear from you

we take care of interaction with the bank at ALL stages

upon completion of the entire process and successful opening of an account, you receive your account details and Internet banking codes

The fee for the service depends on a specific bank/EMI and is determined based on estimation of the time to be spent by the consultant on preparing and supporting your application up to the final decision of the bank/EMI.

Please note that all banks/EMIs are independent financial institutions and reserve the right to reject the account application at any stage of the procedure without giving any reason. We maximize your chances of a positive decision, but we cannot guarantee one.
