I have applied today for a joint account, seem to have got past the first post, just waiting on verification and acceptance now. Cant hurt to have one I think, don't trust these English bar stewards.....Headers wrote: ↑Fri Oct 02, 2020 9:03 pmI went through the criteria with NatWest International Jersey today. 5k held in the bank account is one of their qualifying criteria. Apparently It has very recently been reduced from 25k. Did they see this coming?JohnnyD wrote: ↑Fri Oct 02, 2020 2:44 pmIs this the Select Account on the natwestinternational site? I can't see where it says mon £5000 anywhere?Headers wrote: ↑Fri Oct 02, 2020 1:45 pmI have been investigating various alternatives. Today’s was NatWest International based on Jersey. They have an operating licence for most of the eu countries but not all. They have criteria for an account. The minimum deposit of 5000 was much lower than I thought it would be. They have banking protection like in the U.K. 85k limit.
They offer online, cheques and paying in facilities.
They are being inundated with requests for info at the moment.
I now need to check if our pension providers will pay into a jersey based sterling account.
They recognise the use of transferwise for moving from one currency to another.
