Czech Republic

I moved to the Czech Republic to study at Charles University in Prague. Since I planned to stay here for at least 4 years, I needed a way to quickly get money from my family. Satchel saved me perfectly: there have never been any problems with transfers or payments, especially on the Internet. After a year of study, I got a paid internship and my employer was able to pay my salary directly to my Satchel account, which greatly simplified the situation.

FAQ

What is a personal account?

A personal account is a financial account tailored for personal finances management. Typically used for everyday financial tasks, such as making payments, transferring funds, tracking expenses, and receiving salary deposits, these accounts offer similar functionalities as standard bank accounts. Private accounts provide a user-friendly interface that simplifies financial operations, making it convenient for individuals to manage their money effectively.

What types of accounts do we offer? (Personal / Freelancer)

Satchel offers personal and freelancer accounts with remote account opening. A personal account is a one-stop solution for simple money management and comes with a unique European SEPA IBAN and virtual and physical Mastercard payment cards for secure everyday purchases. A freelancer account allows you to manage your invoices and payments as an entrepreneur in a smart and efficient way.

Can a non-EU resident open a personal account online in Europe?

Absolutely! If you're 18 years of age or older and a non-EU/EEA resident with a valid international passport, you have the right to open a European payment account. As a digital-only banking provider, we've streamlined online account opening, making it accessible to individuals coming from outside the EU/EEA. You don't need to be a resident of an EU/EEA country; a utility bill from your home country is all that's required. You can easily open your account remotely from your home country.

At Satchel, we have no restrictions based on our clients' country of origin or residence. However, please be aware of our list of blacklisted jurisdictions.

What documents are required to open a personal account at Satchel?

Below you will find the full list of documents needed to open a EU personal account online at Satchel:

1. Your passport or national ID.
2. Proof of address or bank statement translated into English or Lithuanian.

Please note that EU citizens can use their ID card or international passport to complete the application. Non-EU citizens must use the international passport option. EU/EEA residency is not obligatory, but we do require a recent utility bill not older than 90 days with your name and address in your home country as proof of residency.

How to open a personal account at Satchel?

Opening a European IBAN account online with Satchel is a straightforward process. You just need to follow these steps:

Can I use my personal account for business?

While using your personal account for business transactions might be tempting, we strongly discourage it due to potential legal complexities. A crucial step in launching a successful business is opening a dedicated corporate account. This step is vital for maintaining precise financial records and efficiently managing your business's cash flow.

At Satchel, the process of business account opening is straightforward and can be completed online, eliminating the need for a physical branch visit. Our European business accounts are accessible to companies worldwide, regardless of their registration status or physical presence in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland. Before submitting your online application for a corporate account, please check our list of blacklisted countries.
