OPENING OF BANK ACCOUNTS
Every company which operates in the Russian Federation is obliged to have a bank account. A bank account is required to complete deals, pay taxes and fees, receive loans, make payments to suppliers and customers, etc. Typically, companies open a bank account immediately after registration.
To open a bank account the bank should be selected, the required documents prepared, and a bank account contract signed. When choosing a bank, particular attention should be paid to:
- Reliability of the bank;
- Service costs;
- Severity of security check.
One of the most important stages in opening a bank account is the preparation of the required documents, as banks often refuse to open a bank account. The most common reasons for refusal are insufficient documents, missing documents confirming the powers of the CEO, lack of a legal entity at its location or location at an address that has been used “on mass”.
After submitting the required documents to the bank, the potential customer is checked by the security service. The security check varies depending on the bank. In some cases, it goes completely unnoticed by the client, but there are exceptions. For example, some banks require a personal meeting with the CEO before the account can be opened.
If the security check is successful, the account is opened. However, there are now many companies that do not pass the security check and are not able to open a bank account.
