Bank Account Establishment Services
The opening of a bank account for your Australian business can be one of the most frustrating and time-consuming components of setting up a business here in Australia. This is in part due to the changing KYC and AML regulations here within Australia, and the subsequent policy and procedure changes from the respective banks operating here.
We keep strong relationships with a number of high street banks (as well as alternative banks) in Australia meaning we are well-positioned to navigate their requirements. Importantly we have identified which banks allow us to open a bank account for your business without the need for your business associates (shareholders and directors) to fly to Australia. This can save you considerable time and cost.
Note: clients will need to provide certain proof of identity documents as part of the bank's KYC and AML requirements. This service is only available to clients of ABN Australia for whom we are providing company formation and/or resident director services.
