Our Bank Account Opening Services
As your business expands, you may need to embark on international expansion, including incorporating foreign companies and setting up local payrolls. And for such, you will need to open a local corporate bank account, which can be complicated and time-consuming, especially with understanding local requirements and regulations, and often in a foreign language. At the Biz Latin Hub group, we can assist you with opening a local bank account. We can advise on local banking requirements and regulations based on our extensive local presence and understanding.

Know Your Client (KYC)
This is where we get to know you and is a process of identifying and verifying the client’s identity when opening a corporate bank account. This is an important process and will help to expedite the bank account opening process.
Bank Account Advisory
We will understand your business and guide you with the right bank selection to meet your banking needs. Here we will ask you questions about your planned banking, your business activity, the Ultimate Beneficial Owner (UBO) and your expected bank transactions
Bank Account Application
We will work with you to prepare the bank account application and ensure it meets the bank’s needs. We will then submit the bank account opening application to the bank. During this stage, our team will engage very closely with the banks on your behalf to ensure bank account opening success
We will monitor and follow up regularly with the bank until the process is completed. Once approved, our local banking team will ensure that everything is in place, including the provision of banking tokens and coordinating the initial bank account opening deposit.
