General description of ID services offered

Foreign companies which are already installed in Uruguay or are starting their local establishment process can access a special service, which translates into significant support and assistance from Banco Santander Uruguay in everything related to local banking needs.

ASK ID is a new tool available in 13 countries* where the Santander Bank is present, this allows you to schedule a "virtual meeting" through a video conference or conference call with the representative of International Desk in the country where you are planning to invest/establish your business without having the need to travel to the country of destination.  Your business manager / International Desk Specialist in the country of origin will be responsible for scheduling the virtual meeting and taking you along in the process.

Brief description of the local offer of services for companies

When a company in Uruguay requires non-banking services and support, Banco Santander Uruguay puts it in contact with our network of external partners, such as law firms, accountants, chambers of commerce, as well as the support from Uruguay XXI for foreign investors.

In the event that there are special needs such as cash management services, international business, etc.., Santander Uruguay offers companies commercial support by specialists, which is highly valued by companies.

Description of how to access the services

ID UY, on receiving a request for customised commercial support, assesses the local bank needs in order to define the most appropriate business protection either by geographical area or by turnover.

We introduce the new client to the branch and account executive who best suits its needs, and who will be responsible for managing it, while providing information on the size of the company and its relationship with the Santander Group in the country of origin, so it can be served commercially in Uruguay as a group which is already a client of the bank in another part of the world.
