GoSolo is a UK based electronic money financial services company that offers an app and online based business account for Limited Companies based in the UK. The account is similar to the ones offered by Tide and ANNA.
It is only available to UK limited companies and you must be the only Director and Sole Shareholder of the said business.
If you don’t already have a registered UK Limited Company they can also provide an incorporation service free of charge.
You must be a UK resident which you must prove by providing a suitable document. You must also have a valid photo ID document which can be compared against a selfie video.
Business accounts can be opened online in as little as 10 minutes.
A physical Mastercard Business Debit Card is also provided with the account.
You can make payments using online banking only between UK accounts but can use the business debit card to make international payments.
There are no international money transfers from the account.
Most functions on the account are free to operate.
