Customer Question

Hi
I have got a guesthouse in Mozambique.
I would like to be able to charge some of my international customers by card and get paid directly into an account in the UK.
To do that I am requested to open a business account in the UK by the payment gateway company.
This takes me to register a new company in the UK that is related to the company I have got in Mozambique.
What kind of company shall I open and what taxation would this company be subject to in the UK, given that as the service is provided in Mozambique I would need to pay taxes in Mozambique anyway. Please feel free to add any relevant information.
Looking forward to your reply
Kind regards
Andrew

Hello

The company you will open will be for guest house work?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I would open the company just for the purpose of being paid in a UK account.
The payment gateway company that implement the online card payment service that I want only operates in some countries (including the UK and not including Mozambique).
They request that the account to be used be a business account.
I only hold a personal account in the UK at the moment.
This is why I would open a company and a business account. Just to be paid in the UK for services that I am offering in another country.
I would like to know what kind of company I shall open in the UK for the purpose and what kind of taxation the company and or myself will be subject to. I am resident in Mozambique where I have got so far 100 % of my business interest. I am an Italian / Mozambican national.Regards
Andrew
