Useful Information

If you have an individual account why not turn it in to a joint one? Having a joint account brings the following advantages:

  • If married or living with your partner a joint account brings convenience making it easy to pay joint bills, mortgages installments and rent.
  • Convenience-Budget for food bills and other shared expenses.
  • You both know what’s going on with your money.
  • In the event of one account holder passing away, the funds on the account will remain available; the account will continue functioning which is not the case if an account is in individual name at the time of death.
If you wish to make the change and add on an account holder talk to us for further information.

For those customers who are in the process of buying or selling a property in France, the prolonged Brexit negotiations are not making decisions on how to best handle currency requirements any more straight-forward.

Top Tip: Renting out your property in France?

Always be vigilant when accepting payments from customers, bank transfers or card payments are the most secure. BE CAREFUL when accepting cheques or bankers' draft, in particular when they have been written for a higher amount than requested. This may be a scam!
