What are the benefits of an International Business Account?

A 3S Money International Business Account is designed for ease of use, catering to ever-expanding needs of global businesses through a single platform. Here’s what you can expect from a 3S Money International Business Account:

  • Multi-currency e-money accounts

  • 65+ supported currencies

Is it simple to open an International Business Account?

For many non-residents visiting a conventional bank, opening an international bank account is much harder than it should be (our co-founder created 3S Money off the back of his own experience, in fact).

We simplify our onboarding by providing a human contact to guide you through the process – you won’t find any infuriating chatbots or automated responses here.

Whatever your situation, whether you’re a non-resident looking to open a local UK bank account or require a foreign currency account, we’re here to get you up and running smoothly.

While other traditional banking partners might take months to onboard you as a customer, we aim to complete the same process in just days.

I have a foreign passport. Am I eligible for a 3S Money International Business Account? 

Yes! We don’t believe that having a foreign passport should be a barrier to opening a bank account – or your success. We also believe in due diligence during the application process.

Most importantly, we don’t hide behind automation when assessing the eligibility of any application. We carefully process each application on a case-by-case basis.

One of our team will be on hand to interview you, understand your needs and request any relevant documentation to get the wheels rolling on your International Business Account.

Once you’ve completed our onboarding process, you’ll be opening international accounts and making global payments in no time. 

What information and documents will I need to supply during my onboarding?

If you want to get ahead of the curve with your application, it helps to have the following kind of information ready:
  • A shareholder register

  • A signed resolution document

  • Evidence of funds (a bank statement, tax return, sales of share document etc)

  • Details of your business activities (where your goods are sourced from and where they’re shipped to, who your customers are)

  • Where your company is based

  • How long it’s been operational

  • Which countries you’ll be paying and receiving funds to and from
