What are some of the problems of opening a non-resident bank account in the Netherlands?

It’s possible to open a non-resident bank account in the Netherlands, but it isn’t always easy. Some Dutch banks do offer special “international” accounts but, depending on your business type, this can be a complicated process.
Corporate service providers, financial institutions, family offices and holding companies often experience difficulty when trying to set up a local account in the Netherlands. Currently, most Dutch banks aren’t opening local IBANs for companies with foreign corporate structures due to compliance incapabilities. Unless you’re a company with a turnover of more than €250 million, international business banking in the Netherlands can be an extensive, time-consuming project. That’s where we can help.
International businesses executing cross-border payments regularly encounter delays or blockages. For too long, low levels of customer service and slow response times have held back businesses. At 3S Money, we understand that international trade demands the ability to receive payments from anywhere in the world and deliver money to clients, suppliers and partners in seconds.
