Congratulations on taking the next step as a real estate agent with PropertyLoop! To facilitate smooth financial transactions and manage your business funds effectively, it's essential to set up a dedicated business bank account for your limited company. Here's a simple guide to get you started:

  1. Choose a Suitable Bank: Research different banks to find one that meets your business needs. Consider factors such as fees, online banking facilities, and any additional services they offer.

  2. Gather Required Documents: To open a business bank account, you'll typically need to provide proof of your limited company's registration (Certificate of Incorporation) and identification for company directors.

  3. Visit the Bank or Apply Online: Once you've chosen a bank, you can either visit their local branch or apply online through their website. Many banks offer online application options for convenience.

  4. Provide Company Details: During the application process, you'll need to supply your company's registered address, UTR, and other relevant details.

  5. Comply with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Regulations: Be prepared to verify your identity and the identity of any beneficial owners or directors as part of the AML requirements.

  6. Review Account Features: Consider features such as overdraft facilities, transaction limits, and online banking capabilities that will help you manage your finances efficiently.

  7. Keep Personal and Business Finances Separate: Once your account is set up, ensure you use it solely for business-related transactions. Avoid mixing personal expenses with business funds.
