Re: The startup got a European banking licence in late 2018

"Apparently nobody had the foresight to code or legislate for that in any other EU nation, but in the UK I was at least able to bully my GP into using the correct name by asking to sign a form accepting the risk of being misidentified in case of an emergency - they caved quickly. "

I'm not Dutch, but the name in my passport isn't my legal name either. HMRC was fine with it, Barclays Bank is fine with it, everyone is fine with it. Only thing with my passport name is my driving license, and booking flights is a pain.
