I have recently formed a UK limited company using an online company formation service. I currently do NOT live in the UK. I have not yet applied for a business bank account in the UK, but I do have a personal bank account with a UK bank. For various personal reasons I cannot travel to the UK for the next couple of months so I cannot arrange a meeting with a UK bank to apply for a business account.
My question is, am I able to use my personal bank account to receive payments for invoices issued by my company? If yes, is there a limitation on the total payments received, and how much? What are the complications for the accountant? Does the same apply for payments I do on behalf of my company, as expenses?
I do have an accountant but I would appreciate a piece of advice from a third.
