I work for Italian companies and live in the UK. I receive my payments into my Italian bank account then transfer them over to my English account on a monthly basis.
At the moment the bank I am using is undergoing a merger and internet access will be changing. I have been told i have to go into the bank in person to collect the new codes but I cannot travel at the moment. Does anyone know of any Italian banks that have accounts for people who live abroad and how these work? TIA

Hi Simona,

Most of my clients are Italian agencies. When I moved back to the UK I closed my Italian bank account and asked my Italian clients to pay the money directly into my UK account in euros. This incurs no charge at my end and is far more convenient. None of my clients have ever objected to doing this. Wouldn't it be easier for you to do something like this?
It is also worth bearing in mind that UK banks don't generally charge any fees for having an account either. I was shocked at how much I had to pay for my Italian bank account.
