Business bank accounts & PSP accounts
It goes without saying that the opening of a bank account is fundamental to any business.
It should be noted, however, that modern day banking is under growing scrutiny from national competent authorities and regulatory bodies who are concerned with the prevention of money laundering, countering of terrorist financing and the role they may play in tax evasion.
International banks are now facing strict rules under the ever-increasing standards of client identification and verification (Know Your Client: KYC). Banks are required to examine and scrutinise prospective clients; for firms, this may mean providing comprehensive company information as well as information on its directors and shareholders.
At FAI Comply, we have developed a banking network and expertise which enables us to not only advise our clients on the most suitable bank for them, but also to assist in the increasingly complex bank account opening process through the collection and proper completion of many documents, as well as interviews and meetings with bank representatives.

What is a Payment Service Provider (PSP)?
The PSP model is different from a standard merchant account or payment gateway because it can integrate with multiple payment methods within a single platform. This offers a big advantage for national and international payments. A PSP encompasses payment processing, money collection and is responsible for contracts with banks and card acquirers for settling the funds collected. When you use a PSP for your business, you are not tied to one bank or payment network – your business will benefit from multiple integrated e-payment solutions such as e-wallets, e-banking and credit/debit cards.
Payment Service Provider: The key benefits
You only enter one contract to gain access to multiple banks and payment methods.
You can add new payment methods quickly and easily.
PSP fraud prevention resources and security reduce the risk of loss of revenue to your business.
