Doola, a business banking company, has debuted a new banking product for international businesses to be able to open a U.S. bank account remotely from anywhere, a press release said Thursday (May 12).
There will be no U.S. Social Security number needed. Founders will be able to register an LLC, DAO LLC or C Corp through the service. They’ll get an employer identification number from the IRS, a bank account, and U.S. address.
After that, the release says doola helps with ongoing compliance with the state and IRS.
It will also handle a business checking account, domestic and international wire transfers, virtual cards, a physical debit card to be mailed to the account owner, and tools to integrate with a company’s U.S. entity.
Doola CEO Arjun Mahadevan said, “Founders globally don’t actually want a company; they want a way to accept payments globally in the U.S. dollar, or accept investment from U.S. investors. Doola Banking makes our platform the fastest way to go from formation to accepting your first payment/deposit globally. Why? Because we do it all in-house. It’s click button, get company plus EIN plus bank account, and ongoing compliance including state and IRS filings are taken care of. As our customers like to say, we’re a Business-in-a-Box.”
