How it works

How does the UOB Virtual Account work?

Under a virtual account arrangement, the Bank can provide a range of virtual account numbers for you to assign to your clients for their respective payments to you. Alternatively, you can provide the range of virtual account numbers which you have assigned to your clients to be set up at the Bank e.g. using client numbers to be part of the virtual account number.

When your clients make payments to you through either manual or electronic payment channels, they will indicate the virtual account number as the crediting account number. Upon receiving these payments, the Bank will link the virtual account numbers to your UOB bank account for the crediting of the payments received. The respective virtual account numbers corresponding to your clients will be reflected in your bank statement enabling you to identify the receivables and ease your AR reconciliation.
