How to Open a Blocked Account in Bangladesh?

Before incorporating a company, an investor must open a Blocked Account in the name of the proposed company with any scheduled bank to remit capital from outside the country. The opening of this account does not require prior approval of the Bangladesh Bank, which is the central bank of Bangladesh.

The Blocked Account will be regularized once the company is registered with the Registrar of Joint Stock Companies and Firms (RJSC&F). Once the registration is completed, the bank will collect all necessary papers.

If the proposed company is declined registration by the RJSC&F, the account will be closed after the entire balance is transferred through a pay order issued in favor of the account’s nominee. Such accounts are not required for commercial offices (branch, representative/ liaison) as they can open a regular bank account and receive initial suspense payment from their head office.
