Ask the bank in question Aug 9, 2006

I doubt if you can open an account via internet. For a business account you may need to visit the bank office and sign lots of papers. Procedures differ from country to country.

Yes, bank laws have become much stricter in the last few years Aug 10, 2006

(in US because of 9/11) and elsewhere probably for other reasons, like money-laundering, so check with your local bank first, and get the information you need, and/or look into an international bank near you that would have branches in the EU if it's even possible.

Why wouldn't you use your local bank account with PayPal and / or Moneylenders? That appears to be the simplest solution, but other colleagues may have more experience in these matters and can give more complete advice.
