Business Bank Account Opening
Opening a business bank account is one of the most difficult and time-consuming steps in the expansion journey. To make the process quicker and more efficient, Goodwille works in conjunction with world-renowned banking organisations to ensure the fundamentals of your business are taken care of.
Disruptive banks such as WISE, Monzo, Revolut or Tide can often be opened quicker than traditional banks. Whilst these accounts may not yet have all the features and protection a traditional bank would have, they can be used to send & receive payments in the UK. For some clients, we may offer our client account facility for temporary use for a narrow range of activities, while waiting for the main account to open.

A registered office is a legal requirement under UK company law for any limited company and provides a contact address for official government posts and legal documents, as well as being the legal seat of the business.
