No. Bank customer confidentiality has never been absolute. Offshore banks are obliged, for example, to disclose information in criminal proceedings against their clients. This is an absolute obligation, regardless of whether the offence was committed in your country or abroad.
Certification means that a bank official, cpa, attorney at law, notary public, attests that the documents are true. As example, for each documents he writes: “I hereby certify this is the true copy of Mr. First Name, Last Name”. This comes with signature, date and professional stamp
Despite ignorant media trying to foolish You, Having an offshore bank account is 100% legal as long as you comply with reporting requirements in your home country.
Don’t believe the propaganda. Bankrupt governments, insolvent banks, and brokers want you to keep your money with them so they can profit. But you are free to bank anywhere in the world you please.
PRIVACY, SECURITY & ANONIMITY
Offshore banks have the highest bank secrecy to protect their clients. No client informations are disclosed.
Banking offshore could be the best way to manage your funds in regards of tax optimization. We understand that each client has their own needs and reasons for banking offshore. You may want a tax haven to benefit form zero taxation. You may want the strict bank secrecy the offshore countries offer, you may want to internationalize your business or you may want to have access to financial services that aren’t available locally. Whatever your reasons, our professionals help you to realize your need and goals and grow and protects your wealth.
Everyone can open an offshore bank account. However, banks reserve the right to reject customers. For example, a bank might refuse to offer banking services to a so-called “politically exposed person” who the bank believes would pose a “reputation” risk if he or she were to become a client. A bank might also refuse to start a banking relationship if it has doubts about the origins of the potential client’s funds. International banks are forbidden by law to accept money which they know or must assume stem from crime or any illegal activities.
Offshore banks have procedures concerning the opening of accounts, irrespective of the domicile of the customer. In line with international financial laws governing “due diligence”, the bank must verify the identity of the customer on the basis of an official document (e.g. a passport and confirmation of residential
Sure There are no restrictions when it comes to closing an account in Offshore countries. You are free to close your account if you wish. The procedure is immediate and cost-free. Of course, if your money is invested, it generally takes a few days to liquidate positions, but even so, no one will prevent you from withdrawing your funds or charge you a financial penalty.
No, that is not possible. Banks follow so-called “know-your-customer” rules which require staff to identify the person opening an account and, where necessary, to establish the identity of the beneficial owner. Incidentally it was the banks themselves who drew up the extremely strict, internationally recognized rules for verifying the identity of their clients as a deterrent to money of criminal
Yes you can choice bank. We do not, however, give out the names of the banks before you actually pay in full an order. Each account we offer can be opened with different banks in the same country. We select the bank that suits better the client needs and minimum deposit requirements. We do not offer “mass product”.
As mentioned above, Offshore banks are obliged to verify the identity of a client. The bank will want to see official identification papers such as a valid passport or an equivalent official identification document containing a photograph. The bank may also ask for documentation that can prove the origin of your funds, such as the contract for a house sale, a statement from a foreign bank, a receipt from the sale of securities, etc.
We have a large network of banks in Offshore countries.
Many of which have been in operations for over 100 years. Our company will select the bank with the best conditions at present from a permanently updated list of banks with the best price-ratio. We work with banks in all categories. Which bank is right for you depends on many factors, such your country of tax residence, where you reside, eventual treaties of exchange information that have been signed, how much you plan to deposit and what kind of operations will you perform with the accoun
If you receive savings and investment income from abroad, you will usually need to declare this on a Self Assessment (SA) tax return. You may have to pay Income Tax, but if you’ve paid foreign tax on the income you may be able to offset (deduct) this.
We kindly advise You to ask for our international tax consulting or ask your local cpa or attorney. Failing to do this may lead to some serious penalties and possibly also a criminal offence charge.
You’ve heard the old saying, “never keep all your eggs in one basket.” In fact, you probably diversify your assets across numerous asset classes, such as growth stocks, blue chip stocks, bonds, and real estate.
Yet few people diversify geographically. Having an offshore bank account reduces your risk and offers the potential benefit of high returns and access to new opportunities and foreign investments. Quite simply, having a bank account overseas is the first step to protecting your wealth and your freedom.
1. Political risks
Offshore bank accounts can’t be controlled by federal or local governments, which means that they simply can’t get their hands on your money. Funds kept offshore is harder to have frozen or seized. In many cases, offshore banking also allows for greater privacy and secrecy.
2. Asset protection
Chances are, your government is broke. Develped counties such as USA, UK or Europe have plenty of liabilities. It would not take too long until the “bubble of debts” will explode. Governments have a history of stealing your money to pay their bills. Asset confiscation has taken place in Cyprus, Ireland, Hungary, and Poland just recently.
Having an offshore bank account can protect your money from fat-fingered government agents and wealth confiscation as well as aggressive lawyers, creditors, and angry ex-spouses.
When you bank in your home country, any bureaucrat can freeze your account without having any proof or even charging you with a crime. Imagine what would happen if you couldn’t access your own money for weeks, months, or years. This is becoming increasingly common for average business owners and citizens in the west.
3. More stable banks
Would you believe banks in the United States are the 40th safest on earth? Or that banks in the United Kingdom are the 44th safest? Those are actual statistics from a recent audit of the world’s banking system. Do you really want your money in banks that are “just OK”? Or do you want your money in the safest banks on earth?
Some of the world’s safest banks are in Germany, Singapore, and even Australia. Banks in the US and much of Europe are nowhere to be found. That’s because most of those banks only keep one or two cents per dollar of your money on hand. Compare that to 20, 25, or even 30 cents per dollar in some offshore banks.
Just because a bank is in a wealthy country does not mean it is more safe. In fact, if you’ve ever wondered what would happen in a modern day bank run, just look at Europe: banks there have started limited customers’ access to their money. And when banks went under, not even deposit insurance protected them in some cases.
4. Deposit insurance fund insolvency
The truth is, the FDIC in the United States has well under one percent of deposits in its reserves. In fact, if every US bank were to fail at once, depositors would only see $1 for roughly every $300 on deposit returned to them.
For years, the US government has been saying the FDIC is insolvent. In fact, the FDIC has long operated in the red. Even President Obama has said that the FDIC is mired in red ink. Between 2009 and 2013, 464 US banks were closed by the FDIC. Meanwhile, countries like Singapore and Switzerland have never had a bank failure. Never.
Many foreign bank accounts also offer deposit insurance on their bank accounts. There are even a few places with unlimited deposit insurance. The most important thing to look for is bank stability, not which country the bank is in. Chances are the next round of “Too Big to Fail” will make your local bank account a target anyway.
5. Currency diversification
Chances are, the currency you hold is on the decline. The western world is in a “currency war” to has destroyed trillions of dollars of wealth held by everyday people like you. Just look at how much more expensive it is to purchase every day necessities like groceries than it was ten or twenty years ago.
In addition to holding hard assets like gold and silver, currency diversification is a good way to protect the value of your assets from central bankers. And offshore bank accounts are a great way to diversify into other currencies.
Banks in financial centers like Hong Kong, Singapore, and Andorra offer as many as 12-15 currencies… all in one account. You can easily sell your dollars and buy pounds, euros, or renminbi at any time. That’s why an offshore bank account is an excellent way to get exposure to emerging currencies and profit from global financial trends.
6. Higher interest rates
Currency diversification is an excellent way to protect your asset base from the destruction of one single fiat currency, but it is also a great way to obtain higher interest rates on your money. Many overseas banks offer interest rates that are 5X, 10X, or even 100X better than you can get at home. If you’re used to relying on interest income, this can be a game changer for you.
New Zealand bank accounts currently pay up to ten times the interest that American banks do. If you’re more adventurous, there are emerging market currencies that offer interest rates as high as 18%. The key is knowing which are a good and which to avoid. In some cases, you don’t even have to sell your US dollars or euros to profit. Several foreign banks pay 5-6% annual yields on US dollar accounts if you don’t want to invest in foreign currencies.
First of all, the bank’s staff will certainly ask questions to fulfill the bank’s legal obligations with regard to due diligence. This will include asking for proof of your identity and also establishing the identity of the beneficial owner of the assets if you are depositing funds on behalf of someone else. The bank’s staff might also ask about the origin of the funds and the nature of your professional business and they will also want to get an idea of your usual financial transactions. In order to offer you the best advice, the bank will also ask about your future plans, for example, whether you intend to buy a house, start a business, retire, etc. If you are asking the bank to manage an investment portfolio they will also ask how much risk you are willing to accept. In short, the more the bank knows about you, the more it can tailor its advice and service to your individual needs
