Frequently Asked Questions –
Why should I choose a European Corporation?
One form of an International Business Company, or IBC, is an EU Corporation. An IBC formed in the European Union can act as the governing entity for a merchant account setup anywhere in the EU. Visa/MasterCard regulations state that all merchant accounts must be setup under and governed by a corporation within the country of the Processing/Acquiring Bank. Our Direct International Merchant Account Solutions are setup through banks we have direct relationships with in the EU. Therefore, any merchant processing directly through the acquiring bank with their own Merchant ID will need to incorporate in one of the EU jurisdictions we offer incorporations in. The quickest, cheapest, and easiest to maintain is a United Kingdom corporation.
