If your association does not have a bank account, it will not be able to receive donations, grants or other forms of financial support. The association also cannot collect membership fees. If you are looking to subsidize your project, a bank account will be necessary.Open an online bank account for your associationIf you want to open an account for association, you have the possibility to do it online directly through a 100 igit bank specialized for business accounts. By opting for an online offer, you will be able to make big reductions each month and moreover, you will be able to find offers more adapted to your situation than in a classic banking establishment since the offers are multiple and are adapted to each association, to its size or to its number of employees for example.Services offered at the level of a classic bankAn online offer does not mean under offer.

If your association has already been created, but is not yet declared, it is time to declare its existence, as this is an important formality before opening a bank account.Regarding the legal person who must open the bank account, the Association must first convene the Board of Directors in order to designate the person(s) who have the necessary skills to manage the Association's accounts and, therefore, know all the steps necessary to open a bank account for an association. If more than one person is designated, it should be specified whether he or she must act jointly, i.e., all decisions concerning the association's banking operations require several mandatory signatures. Or also the designated person must act separately, at least one signature is required. All this information must be included in the Law of Deliberation to be informed to the Bank. For the opening of an account by an association, it must be sent to the bank by a letter of application for the opening of a bank account by an association.To open an account, several documents will be required. Each bank has different requests, but will have to provide at least the following documents:Statute of the AssociationLetter of receipt of the declaration from the prefectureExtract from the Official Gazette of the publication of the AssociationThe deliberations of the deliberative procedure authorized by the statutes designating the person or persons responsible for the account of the associationA copy of the identity documents of the persons authorized to operate the account.
