National Australia Bank Limited is considered one of the best Australian banks. The institution provides a high level of service and access to a diversified list of banking products.
If you plan to open a National Australia Bank account, you will receive the following benefits:
- a vast network of bank branches;
- options of accounts not only in the Australian dollar but also in major international currencies (US dollars, euros, British pounds sterling);
- speed and convenience of international settlements in currencies;
- confidentiality of client data and communications;

Account opening procedure
The bank offers individuals to open current, savings, and deposit accounts. Individuals provide the following data and documents along with the application to open an account:
- utility receipts (proof of address);
- resume, including information about activities;
- income information.
The bank offers favorable service conditions for corporate clients. Rates vary depending on account activity. Corporate clients who do not make many transactions pay a bank fee on each closed transaction instead of a monthly fee. Corporate clients who close a lot of transactions pay a monthly fee.
Corporate clients must obtain a business registration number and a unique nine-digit identifier from the competent state authorities in Australia before submitting a package of documents for consideration. A bank account application form is then generated, which, in addition to the application form, must provide:
- information on the business activities of the legal entity, including the business plan;
- constituent documents;
- documents that confirm the legal entity’s current status;
- information on the structure of the legal entity and the group of companies (if any) to which it belongs;
- information on the shareholders, beneficiaries, and management of the legal entity, including copies of their passports, utility bills (as proof of registration), resumes, and information on activities and revenues.
It takes 2-3 weeks to open a National Australia Bank account. After that, the bank reserves the right to request additional information and documents and refuses to open an account. The most common reasons for refusal are non-compliance with the bank’s requirements and policies and the submission of unreliable information. Prifinance lawyers have experience opening international accounts and are ready to form application packages to avoid the risk of refusal in opening a bank account.
