BANK ACCOUNT OPENING DISCLAIMER: Be aware that banks reserve the right to decide whether to open a specific company account. Startupr itself is neither responsible nor liable for any bank’s decision. Although customers may succeed in opening certain bank accounts within 15 working days, most of our clients normally enjoy company account opening within 15-20 working days once the banks receive full due diligence. In some cases, if a bank requires further information, or a local holiday occurs, there can be several days’ delay. If you hire Startupr services to assist you with the bank compliance, please be aware that we spend time on consulting and preparation for your particular case. As we are not responsible nor liable for any of the bank’s decisions, all fees paid shall not be refundable under any circumstances once the introduction is made. Startupr reserves the right of the final decision in case of any dispute. Please note again that all bank account opening and decisions are made solely by the banks, and Startupr does not take responsibility for the bank’s decisions.
