The Basix Package

 

Choice of UK Bank Accounts


BritBound's Bank Account service has two objectives:  1) to give you a choice of accounts and 2) to make sure you get an account—by ensuring that the bank doesn’t take longer than promised to open your account, making sure they do not fail to take in any relaxed criteria where previously agreed, lose your application or send you around in circles.

2 X Free Money Transfer


Your first two international transfers are free. This means you can get money from your home bank account to your UK one without having to pay fees from ATMs or incurring bank charges from both your home and new bank, which are typical for these types of transfers. 

Choice of UK SIM Card


All of BritBound's packages include a UK Sim Card (you can also upgrade to a MicroSim) and they provide your number straight away so you can give it out to your family, friends and any employers or recruitment agencies even before you leave. All of the SIMs are mainstream network providers and are set up on a Pay as You Go system. 

National Insurance Number


Your NI number is a legal necessity that is similar to a social security or tax file number. It works as a unique ID number that you have for the rest of your life. It also gives you access to a whole range of services including a reciprocal health scheme with our National Health Service. BritBound ensures you get your NI number set up as quickly as possible.  

Employment Resources and CV Template


Get access to BritBound's employment resources, ”Working In” guides, a UK specific CV template, as well as insider tips and access to their exclusive Jobs Board. Furthermore, resident experts can assist with Payroll Services as well as comprehensive tax tutorials to better understand what your options are once you’re working.
