What are requirements for opening a bank account for company?

Banks normally require you to provide them with certified copies of a company’s certificate of incorporation, bylaws or Memorandum and Articles of Association, plus the resolution of the directors to open a bank account. All banks also require evidence of beneficial ownership in the form of certified copies of passports and the relevant resolutions by the Board. Banks have to know their customers’ business and therefore we will require clients to provide us with detailed plans for the new company’s operations. As a condition for opening a new account, most banks require that an initial deposit be placed, and some banks may insist that significant minimum balances be maintained.
