Have you ever visited the bank to open a business bank account and you were told to come back because you did not have all the required documents? Naturally, this is after you waited for three hours!
Thank you for stopping by!! In this post, apart from inviting you to subscribe to my YouTube channel, (PLEASE SUBSCRIBE) I will be describing the requirements for you to open your business bank account in Trinidad and Tobago.S.U.B.S.C.R.I.B.E
The general requirements to open a business bank account for a Small Business (Sole Trader) are:
1.Certificate of Registration;
2.Two valid forms of Government issued, photo identification;
3.A utility bill in your name, if the bill is not in your name, you will need an authorization letter from the person whose name appears on the utility bill and a copy of their unexpired Government issued photo identification. I am always telling my clients to get a utility bill in their name. See my YouTube video where I explain the importance of this.
4.A Business Stamp with your business name on it.
5.Special letters such as a letter of request, a letter requesting online banking.
6.Cash Flow Projections for three years.
7. Some banks require a Board of Inland Revenue (BIR) number;
8.Additional documents such as F.I.U (Financial Intelligence Unit) Registration.
9.The minimum deposit payable to the bank, as the first deposit in your account.
Other documents may be required according to the sector that you operate in.
