We are a UK-company, selling in the US. We would like to open a US bank account. Is this possible, either remotely or in person? What is the process we need to go through?

A simple Google search will give you answers to this question.

I am not an accountant or a banker and this is not "professional advice."

From the articles you will see, it is clear that setting up an account for a foreign company is possible. However, you must provide plenty of paperwork to satisfy the bank that you are who you say you are.

Apparently there are online banks that may allow you to set up the account remotely.

Another caution the articles will show you is that while some bankers may earnestly give you the advice to set up a US corporation--which is indeed easy and inexpensive--if you do, you are then getting into the mess of having to pay US taxes.

If I could find out this information from good sources in a few minutes, you could have as well.
