Banking has become a major issue for ex-pats living in Europe post Brexit. There was another thread started on this point and Transfer Wise was the most common solution people in this situation has gone with. Interestingly, HSBC seem to be the only mainstream provider not to have closed accounts for Ex-Pats in Europe

This happened in 2017, well before the Brexit problems. My other UK high street bank accounts have fortunately not been affected by the Brexit change this year. The only problem I did have was that my BTL property insurance policy was cancelled at very short notice from 1st Jan as I live in Cyprus. I had to find a new insurer who would cover expats pretty fast.

I tried opening a Starlet bank account but fell down at the point that it was a new business. They wanted biz plans..... which was too much hassle so I never completed transfer. Their loss as my business is progressing now.
