HOW TO OPEN AN OFFSHORE BANK ACCOUNT?
The procedure for opening accounts in offshore banks is not very complicated and can usually be made by mail within a period of time that can vary significantly. Depending on the speed of the people or institutions concerned, the process can last from a few days to a few months.
As for the documents required, for personal offshore accounts at least one certified copy of a passport and a proof of address of the account holder is requested. A bank or credit card statement or a utility bill is usually enough.
Very few offshore banks, but not all, also request a letter of reference from another bank or an authorization that allows them to consult the solvency and integrity of the client with the entity. A simple letter from your regular banker confirming that you have an account with the bank and your credit standing is correct is usually more than enough. On occasions, a second letter of recommendation from an attorney or accountant with whom you normally carry out business may also required.
For corporate offshore accounts, in addition to the documents of the company duly certified and sometimes apostilled, the personal identification of all beneficial owners, shareholders, directors and persons entitled to sign the account is also required. For this reason, the personal documents mentioned above are required for each of them. For companies that use nominee directors or nominee shareholders, the bank may requires the identification of the final beneficial owner of the company. Some banks do not performe this additional due diligence
Any respectable bank, either offshore or onshore, will perform due diligence and KYC to a greater or lesser extent. Normally they will settle with the information on the account application form, but it is not uncommon, especially in cases where significant amounts are deposited, for the bank to request additional documentation to prove the origin of the money (labor contracts, supporting documents of the sale of property, an inheritance, etc.). This information, however, is private and protected by banking secrecy.
How to open offshore bank accounts
Personal vs Business Offshore Bank accounts
Offshore Merchant Accounts
Most online retail and services businesses, including those built on an offshore corporate platform, need to be able to accept credit cards. This is achieved by contracting with a credit card merchant service provider, or opening of an offshore merchant account. There is a multitude of international providers who offer such service to businesses.
Opening of a merchant account is not easy for an offshore business, and it’s subject to individual assestment.
Many types of high-risk businesses are not easily accepted by merchant service providers, or such businesses are accepted at very high commission rates.
Thanks to our knowdledge and relatioships we can help you accept credit cards payments online.
Any business would be able to have traditional or a more modern merchant account
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.
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.
Opening an international bank account is not like opening one in your home country, where all you need is a walk into any bank down the street with your driver’s license and 10$.

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.

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
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.
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.
Sure , almost all our clients are non-residents. We have clients in many
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

From few working days up to 3 weeks.
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
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
ORDER YOU BANK ACCOUNT OR ASK YOUR QUESTIONS
UNDERSTANDING BANK DUE DILIGENCE REQUIREMENT
(KNOW YOUR CLIENT POLICY)

l) Charter of the Foundation, and
m) Register showing the Council of Members.
For at least two of the Council of Members, beneficiaries and for all other authorized account signatories please provide certified copies of the items laid out at i) through iv) below.
If the potential client is a fund, instead of item d), g) or j) and due diligence on investors, i.e. items i) through iv) as specified, an AML comfort letter is required from the fund’s administrator or transfer agent confirming that they are responsible for performing due diligence on the fund’s investors – we have a standard template available for this. Where the potential client has an entity as either a director or shareholder, documentation as outlined above is required for that type of entity.
If the potential client is a regulated financial institution we may be exempt from collecting due diligence on it.
Source of funds
Please ensure that sufficient, relevant information on the source of funds to be deposited with banks is provided with the application form.
Most banks are unable to provide services to entities that have issued bearer shares; these must either be immobilized or cancelled and reissued to persons. Entities that haven’t, but are capable of issuing bearer shares must undertake not to issue bearer shares, or upon their issue the account(s) will be frozen until the bearer shares are either immobilized or cancelled.
UNDERSTANDING CERTIFICATION, NOTARIZATION AND APOSTILLE
Banks are required by law to identify the signatories and the beneficial owners of all bank accounts.
This means a bank needs to know your name, nationality, date of birth, address, and possibly some other contact information such as a phone number or email address.
There are essentially three types of certification:
However, because banks can face severe repercussions for failing to validate the identity of an account holder, they ask for supporting documents to verify the applicant’s identity..
Certification is when a copy is made of for example your passport and someone writes a note on the copy saying that they certify it is a truthful copy of the original and that they have seen the original. Virtually anyone, can be a certifier but it’s accepted only when comes form a: legal professionals, accountants, medical doctors.
Notarization: This is done exclusively by a notary.
Speaking easy, it gives an international document the same legal power of national document. Basically a US apostilled certificate of incorporation, in France has the same legal value of a certificate of incorporation redacted a french notary.
What about countries that aren’t signatories to the Apostille Treaty? Some banks there still ask for apostille under the reasoning that the document is certified by a notary and the additional level of apostille strengthens the trust in the copy, but most accept notarization.
UNDERSTANDING EXCHANGE OF INFORMATION
While the issue of tax havens has always been of interest, it has become particularly contentious in recent years. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development has made it a goal to eliminate tax havens through better information sharing, and has proposed various reporting tools for sharing information between countries.Now various factors must be taken into consideration in order to provide the best solution for the clients.The most important factor is EXCHANGE OF INFORMATION.This must be assested in relation to the type of treaty:
1) The new Standard for Automatic Exchange of information on Financial Account in Tax Matter
Aims to obtain detailed account information from financial institutions and share the information automatically with other jurisdictions each year. Forty-four (44) countries have already committed to making the first automatic information exchanges in 2017
2) DTA (Double taxation agreement) based on OECD model
Art.26 Exchange of Information, DOUBLE TAXATION AGREEMENT (DTA)
3) TIEA (Tax information exchange agreement)based on OECD model
Art.5 Exchange of information upon request, TAX INFORMATION EXCHANGE AGREEMENT (TIEA)
4) Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters (mutual legal agreement) based on OECD model
Art.6, Art.8, Art.9 Exchange of Information, CONVENTION ON MUTUAL ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANCE IN TAX MATTERS (MLAT)
