How can I open a Qonto for my association based in Italy?
If you want to open an account for your association, follow these steps and get the following documentation ready at hand:
1 - Personal Identity Documents
How to provide the requested documents? Follow the instructions in this article!
For President, Vice-President (if any), Secretary (if any), Treasurer (if any):
A valid identity document - you can find the complete list of accepted documents here.
👉 Only the President or a natural person expressly delegated by him can open a Qonto account in the name of the company (otherwise, we invite you to click here to download the general power).
👉 According to our internal policies, Qonto reserves the right to accept an association only when its executive board is expressly made of a minimum of 3 members.
2 - Association’s documents:
If your association is registered to the Chamber of Commerce:
Visura camerale (Company Registration Certificate) not older than three months.
Otherwise, prepare the following documentation:
Bylaws of the association, signed and stamped;
Certificate of incorporation, signed and stamped
Updated meeting minutes, signed and dated;
Certificate of allocation of the fiscal code signed and stamped*
Extract (or receipt) of registration in the category register (national register, regional register, Onlus register, certificate of registration with CONI).
*We can also accept its electronic copy, containing the Association’s information and fiscal code/VAT.
👉 If you are registering the local/provincial/regional seat of an association, remember to send us the bylaw, or minutes of incorporation of your seat and not the ones of the general seat.
NB: The associations that can currently open a Qonto account are:
Associations of social promotion (APS);
Voluntary organizations (ODV);
Associations carrying out an activity of general interest under the ETS reform.
⚠️ At the moment, associations between professionals, foundations, committees, NGOs (Non-Governmental Organization - In English NGO) and public administrations or with public participation, as well as entities managed, coordinated or controlled by these entities cannot open a Qonto account with us yet.
