Opening a bank account for a company

To open a bank account for your company, you always need an extract from the trade register. The bank may also require other documents related to your company. These vary by bank and company form. You can open the account either by visiting one of the bank's branches or online, depending on the bank. At the same time, remember to also get the tools you need to use the account, such as the online banking IDs and a debit card. 

Although banks must offer a basic payment account service to all consumer clients who live legally in an EEA state, a bank may decline a client relationship with a company if it so wishes.
