Bus/Financial - Finance (general)
French term or phrase: Compte financier
This appears in the small print at the bottom of a letter from an insurance company to the complainant's lawyer:

"TVA : BE XXXXXXXX - Bruxelles - Compte financier nº XXX-XXXXXXX-XX"

Can anyone suggest a correct English translation of 'Compte financier' in this case, please?

Many TIA,

Vicky
