Can a non-resident open a business account with wamo?

Yes, you don’t need to be a UK resident to open a wamo business account. If you have a legitimate business and the documents and information required, you can open a wamo business account.

Do I have to be in the UK to register my new UK company?

No, you can do it all using the wamo mobile or desktop app.

Can I use my office address if it’s outside the UK?

No. The address you register must be in the UK. It must also be in the same region of the UK as the company you're creating. For example, if you’re registering a Scottish limited company you must have a Scottish address for your registered office address.

Will I need to have a resident director for my company?

While your company must have at least one director who is over 16 years old and not in any way disqualified from being a director - your director does not need to be resident in the UK.

Your company director can be a non-UK resident and can be living anywhere in the world. What’s important is that your business address is a UK address.

Can I make an application on behalf of someone else?

For the moment, whoever is making the application has to be the one to sign the terms and conditions. This is for legal reasons.
