Bank Account with debt
« on: Oct 02, 2010, 12:35:31 PM »
I have not re-paid a bank loan of 11k from 8 years a go with HSBC in the UK. If I try to open another HSBC account overseas (Hong Kong for example) because my employer uses HSBC will I have any issues. I thought the banks were separate entities?

Hi there Shedend
 
If you are overseas, I do not think a debt problem in the UK will give you any problems with your credit rating locally. You should have no issue opening a new bank account in a different country even if you have had problems with the same bank in the UK.

Hi Shedend


It shouldn't effect you as it is overseas in just the same way that your credit rating shouldn't follow you abroad  either
