All businesses need an idea, starting capital and a bank account. A Citadele account is a powerful motor which will drive your business forward.

  • Easily link your account to your accounting programme for wage payments and other transfers

Escrow accounts for businesses

Do you have a serious transaction in mind, but want to reduce the risk of the other party not fulfilling their obligations? For these situations, we offer an escrow account. The bank ensures that, once one party has fulfilled their obligations, the other party pays.

  • Complete real estate and other transactions
  • There may be an increased commission fee if there are more than three parties involved in the transactions; the agreement must be prepared in another language; the account needs to be opened urgently; or the standard terms and conditions are changed per the customer’s request
  • Please bear in mind that, when submitting an application, all involved parties must sign
  • Apply for a Transaction Account remotely by signing an application form using eParaksts and emailing it to info@citadele.lv, or by filling in a free-form order through the online bank and attaching an application. You can also submit an application at any of our customer service locations.
