What is an Expat
An Expat (Expatriate) is someone who has been living outside of their native country for any number of reasons, for example, work or retirement.
A large number of British expats stay out of the UK for a certain period of time due to work commitments and plan to return back to the UK eventually. There are some British Expats that choose to never return to their native country (Country of Citizenship).
Moving Back to the UK
If you are an Expat considering moving back to the UK, there is a lot that needs to be considered, one top priority is a bank account.
Living without a bank account in the UK can be very tricky as it greatly affects everyday living. A personal banking account or current account is generally required to do anything in today’s modern society.
Banking for British Expats
Finding a banking solution if you are an Expat coming back to the UK can be challenging. Many high street banks require 3 months proof of address within the UK to open a bank account. Something that an Expat simply won’t have when they return back to the UK.
Living within the UK with no personal bank account or current account can prove difficult with everyday tasks such as paying for rent, utility bills, mobile phone payments, car finance and more.
Many British ex-pats 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.
