When starting a company, managing business finances is deemed to be one of the most concerning matters for entrepreneurs. Normal cases come with traditional banks where you can physically open a corporate account and manage your business transactions with it. And the fact is setting up a traditional bank account is simple for residents in a jurisdiction. It is, however, troublesome for non-residents, especially in highly-regulated countries like the United States due to the complicated procedure.
Things are easier with the development of digitalization. BBCIncorp has built a close partnership with Mercury to facilitate your financial transactions for US non-resident businesses with ease. To incorporate, and manage your payments from any place around the world is now in a couple of clicks.
1. Mercury is now BBCIncorp’s partner
Getting a certificate of registration is only the first step of forming a US business. Financial transactions, without any doubts, happen alongside your daily company operations. Opening a bank account is typically the next important step in your business planning, but US banks usually require physical meetings. This means most business owners like you, the ones residing in a place other than the US, might face some challenges.
Mercury is one solution to help your US non-resident company manage its finances efficiently.
Mercury is not a bank but acts like a bank. The banking services are provided by Evolve Bank & Trust, a member of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). With a Mercury account, you can manage all payments, keep tracking your checking and saving account in real-time with an online application.
Mercury is a perfect fit for small and medium-sized companies doing business in the US. But one prominent minus is that Mercury is not available to sole proprietors.
