My ltd company was just refused a mobile contract with Vodafone based on the bank statement being with Tide. Their argument is that Tide is a prepaid account and can therefore not be used as a proof document.
They are asking me for a corporate bank statement with another bank whilst Tide is the only account we have. We do not rent office space either, so there are no alternative utility documents Vodafone are willing to accept.
Their proposal is to allow me to open a business contract in my own name instead, which I have no interest in (wouldn’t be expensable).
Anyone else had this problem or advise?
