How does the opening of my online current account work?


The opening of an online current account is simplified with Alf. Indeed, we collect the information needed for the opening of your bank account in order to communicate them directly to our financial partners.

If you choose our financial partners, here are the few steps for the opening of your current account:

  • Upon receipt of the administrative package from Alf and your signed contract, our partner will issue the standard identity check and will open your account.
  • Alf then receives a copy of your bank account's details in order to instruct automatically the transfer of the initial share capital.
  • The funds are credited within 48 hours to your company's account and you receive your online account access within 24 to 48 hours!
