Opening corporate account with a payment service provider

A company cannot function fully without a settlement account. However, opening an account might be challenging, as banks of all countries have recently tightened requirements for clients and imposed more stringent procedures to counter money-laundering. In this case, a company may opt for payment systems that represent an efficient alternative to traditional banks and serve non-resident companies. Magrat can offer you qualified assistance in opening an account in a payment system.
