Getting paid

Hi, We rent out properties in Portugal but our business is UK based, We want to be paid into our UK account but Booking.com say we need a Portuguese account? Anyone know Why?and how do we get around this as to set up a Portugse account we would have to have a Portuguese business yet we are in Europe with dual taxation treaties. Makes no sense to me as we already work with Tripadvisor with no issues.

Hi! Tina and welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear about your struggles.
Bank must be in the same country as the residence.

I think an alternative would be activating "Online payments by booking.com" and you would be charging BDC virtual card.
Maybe you should call your BDC local office and ask for more support.
Wish you all the best...

Ok thanks I have changed to take payments myself by credit card, this is under the polices tab. New properties default to BDC taking payments. All I need now is BDC to convert current bookings to this method. I will ring them as the email replies are standard answers and not entirely helpful.
Again thanks for your response.
