Why use 3S Money?
UK banks are letting business owners down
Brexit, strict compliance and risk-averse attitudes make it difficult for global business owners to open local accounts and make cross-border payments. We’re virtual IBAN providers making the UK accessible for everyone, regardless of the colour of their passport.
A UK sort code and account number in your company name
Enjoy all the benefits of a UK business bank account without the paperwork. Your account number and sort code will give you the tools to operate as a local business in the UK.
Manage all local and global payments through one account
Having a dedicated business account, or merchant account, makes international payment processes much easier, whether you’re paying local taxes, salaries, or overheads. Our UK Business Account can be used for direct debits, standing orders and is accepted by HMRC.
