Banking and finance in Scotland

Scotland has a long history when it comes to banking — going back more than 300 years. As such, the country’s banking system is highly refined and offers unique advantages, like not paying banking fees if you remain within credit on your account. There is a variety of account types to choose from, depending on services offered but also depending on how long you’ve been in the country for. The process of opening a bank account can be challenging or costly depending on your nationality.
