Helping you start your startup
You need a business account to register your company. A temporary account with FINCI is the fast way to get this, without going through the full verification process.
Once your account is opened, and you have transferred the required share capital, you’ll receive our signed reference letter. You can then complete the company registration process and get on with business.
Easily upgrade to full business account
Once your company is formed, it’s easy to upgrade to a full business account. You’ll then get access to our suite of payments services, including instant cross border payments. With a dedicated account manager, supported by our team of payments and compliance experts, we’ll help you trade efficiently with the world.
