Hi, I am a French citizen, living in St Barths (French Island), I used to live in the UK and have an extensive history of work in the UK. I have been banking (personal) with the UK for 25 years and I have a SS number in the UK as well. 2 weeks ago, I have created a UK LLP that is a joint partnership between Myself as an individual + my Estonian Limited Company ( whom I am the unique shareholder and director). Through my LLP, I offer entertainment consulting to entities and advise them on what kind of entertainment is right for them. Example, a hotel wants to upgrade the type of event they offer to their customer, I will consult for them and they will pay me hourly for my service.
I want to open a tide account but a person called Lucinda at tide, told me that my business cannot work with tide because tide doesn’t deal with Estonia ( EU) companies, and with complex ownership structures (there is only one person, ME 100%, French citizen) and the LLP is in the UK.
I have uploaded all my documents and everything regarding my LLP and regarding my OU (limited company) in Estonia, can be found online. I need to know how I can have the Tide account opened, please help.
I need to say that it feels very strange also to be talking on a cell phone, with someone one doesn’t have the name of, uploading documents such as my passport copy, company documents, my face, and in the end someone telling me we don’t want you.
I need at least in virtue of European law, a copy of the information you are holding on me, it feels like throwing my passport copy in the abyssal and I don’t like it.
