When creating a business from scratch, the first thing to think about is how to open a foreign bank account for a legal entity. Domestic entrepreneurs often make the same mistake, first registering a business, and then resolving the issue of selecting a foreign bank. In some situations, it is possible to find the right bank, in extreme cases, it is necessary to rebuild the corporate structure for specific banking solutions.

✓ make sure the tariff policy is affordable and fits into the budget
✓ access to investment, brokerage services
