Open corporate bank account in New Zealand
Tetra Consultants assists our international clients with New Zealand corporate bank account opening for their newly-established companies. Tetra Consultants has established partnerships with multiple reputable New Zealand banks with excellent internet banking facilities. Some of the New Zealand banks we worked with include ANZ, BNZ and Westpac.
Throughout the process of corporate bank account opening, our international clients are not required to travel to New Zealand. In most cases, New Zealand banks will require the local director to visit one of the local branch for KYC verification. In this case, Tetra Consultants’ nominee director will attend the meeting on your behalf. Alternatively, our team will negotiate with the banks to conduct a video interview instead. This is to minimize engagement delay and secure corporate bank account numbers at the soonest.
On average, it takes around 4 weeks to successfully open a multi-currency corporate bank account with New Zealand banks. To ensure minimal time delays, our banking team will prepare a detailed business plan and required KYC documents in advance. If required, our nominee director will visit the bank branch to verify his identity within one business day.
For businesses dealing with financial services, most New Zealand banks will deem the company as high-risk. As such, there is a very high probability that the bank officer will subject our international clients to enhanced due diligence checks. In addition, our international clients may be subject to stricter on-boarding requirements such as presence of local office and employees. Nevertheless, our banking team is familiar with the different requirements and expectations of each bank.
