    Are there any online bank accounts that allow for change/hide name for transfers? 15th Jan 20 at 7:42 PM
    I do a lot of business where i pay people via bank transfer direct in to their account but i no longer want to show my real name when making payments, FPO etc.

    The few banks i have tried all display my first initial and full last name, i would be OK with just my initials or perhaps a nickname instead.

    If anyone has done this can you help me and let me know which bank it was, would appreicate it, thanks.

    You would set up a business account. No personal account will let you do this.

    Business as in you run a business? If so, put the account in the business name?

    If not a business then no idea what you are doing or why you want to hide your identity.

    Next question. I've set up a business account. How do I blank out business name on payments...
