Default New UK Basic Bank Accounts

Hi everyone

Im still very new to this forum but in the process of setting up some stealth accounts.

I can only apply for basic UK bank accounts due to a problem with a business I was involved in going into liquidation.

Is there a limit to the number of UK basic bank accounts someone can open or will I run out of banks?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

By the way.....this forum is a lifesaver!

Many thanks in advance for any help!

No limit; you can even have multiple basic accounts with the same bank.

There is no real answer to this and basic bank accounts is the best way to go with stealth but dont try to open too many at once!

I know that credit checks are not required for basic bank accounts, that's what they are there for but banks and financial institutions still have to append to the law of money laundering etc and if you open too many accounts at once, they will potentially flag you or close your accounts.

There's no golden rule on how many to open over what time period but I've hear an account every 2 months quoted and I for one would agree that this is a sensible time frame.

Dont go nuts opening them. Try to keep it to 1 every 2 months at the very most.

For stealth you never use an bank issued Credit or Debit card as it will have your real details assigned to it.

VCCs are good n cheap and you can pick up one in your local high street.
