What do I need to open a business bank account with Lenco?

  • A valid government-issued ID for the account holder(s)
  • A utility bill or other document that proves your address
  • A business registration certificate (if applicable)
  • A Tax Identification Number (TIN) (if applicable)
  • A proof of source of funds (for example, a bank statement or a recent payslip)

If you are opening a business account for a sole trader, you will need to provide your own personal ID and address documents. If you are opening a business account for a company, you will need to provide the ID and address documents of the company directors, as well as the company registration certificate.


You can apply to open a Lenco business bank account online or in person at a Lenco branch. The online application process is quick and easy, and you can usually get your account approved and activated within 24 hours.

It is important to note that Lenco does not allow you to use your personal bank account to open a business account. You must have a separate bank account for your business. This is because a business bank account provides you with a number of benefits, such as:

  • Separate finances for your business and personal expenses
  • Easier bookkeeping and tax reporting
  • Increased credibility with suppliers and customers
  • Access to business-specific banking products and services

If you are a business owner, I recommend that you open a separate business bank account with Lenco or another bank. This will help you to keep your business finances organized and compliant, and it will give you access to the benefits that a business bank account can offer.
