Opening a bank account if you are new to the UK can be challenging. Most high street banks require 3 months proof of address within the UK to open an account, something that you most likely won’t have! Suits Me® help thousands of people open a current account in the UK without 3 months proof of address
It is important to open a current account as living in the UK with no personal account to manage your money and finances can prove difficult with everyday tasks such as paying for rent, utility bills, mobile phone payments, car finance and more.Open Your Account

Many UK expats are effectively financially excluded from many traditional high street banks as they can’t meet the requirements needed to open a bank account.
At Suits Me®, we believe in equality and financial inclusion and that anyone should be able to have access to a banking solution. We aim to provide the underbanked and unbanked access to fair and transparent banking solutions and financial services.

This depends on your personal needs and requirements and whether you need a bank account or are happy with a trusted alternative to traditional UK banking such as Suits Me®.
