Non-US Businesses

If your business operates outside the United States, we have banking solutions to help it grow. Visit our International Business Network to learn more.

Getting Started

Please have the following available:

  1. Tax Identification Numbers (TIN & SSN)
  2. The date your business was established
  3. Copies of your certificate(s) to conduct business and/or use a assumed name (varies depending on how your business is organized)
  4. Authorized signer's address information (home and business)
  5. Copies of current state driver's license or government issued ID for all signers.



All applicants must be at least 18 years of age, a U.S. Citizen or Resident Alien with a U.S. address and tax identification number to apply online.

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person or entity that opens an account.

What this means for you: If you open a personal account, we will ask for your name, address, taxpayer identification number, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. Additionally, we will take certain steps to verify your identity, such as asking for your driver's license or other identifying documents or checking other sources. Similar identification requirements apply to non-personal accounts such as corporations and partnerships. Be assured that we recognize the importance of protecting your privacy and safeguarding the confidentiality of the information you provide to us.


If you need assistance or have questions about the application, please contact us or call 1-877-HSBC-BIZ (1-877-472-2249).
