Opening a bank account abroad can be a necessity for a commercial activity or when you have savings to protect.

How to open a bank account abroad without making mistakes

The strategy of having a bank account abroad, or even more than one, can be very helpful from the operational point of view and also for legal and economic security.

Normally, people prefer choosing a bank located in a tax haven. The reason is that countries called tax havens concede ample tax exemptions and are usually particularly stable countries.

Economic stability is without a doubt the most looked for quality because it is the most beneficial factor for capital and wealth. Unfortunately, however, it’s not so easy to find, even in the most developed countries.

It’s a fairly common practice to see how governments alternate or rapidly produce sudden political changes such as nationalism, tax hikes, inflation, tax regulations, expropriations, devaluations, and all sorts of tax thefts for satisfying their immoderate appetite for funds.

So, anyone who has assets or some interests to protect must act to defend and protect them.

It’s not doing something illegal; it’s more than legitimate to protect your work and your savings.

Opening accounts abroad allow you to protect your assets in secure places and protected from undesirable surprises.

However, governments with high taxes, to tackle this phenomenon, have joined forces to try to prevent their citizens from taking refuge from their tax madness. And the system that they have found is to threaten the banks located in tax havens, blaming them of favoring money laundering and terrorism.

How to bank investigations or due diligence

Banks in tax havens, in order to avoid severe penalties, have been obligated to apply protocols that contemplate due diligence, a prior investigation foe each new customer. The most used term is compliance.

For these reasons, the banks in the tax havens had to eliminate anonymous and numbered accounts. Then, they became much more demanding regarding the new client’s activity and the origin of the funds.

These days, they demand that, at the opening of the account, the customer is physically present and shares certain documentation prepared according to its norms and requirements. If they aren’t satisfied, they’ll tell him he is a customer who doesn’t comply with their norms and won’t open the account for him.

And it’s right here that the majority of people looking for a bank, without having a prior preparation on how to overcome the investigative process made by the bank, start have difficulties.

STEP 2: before beginning our assistance for opening a bank account abroad, we require that you pay our consultancy fees, the price of which is 350.00 EUR, or its equivalent in another currency or cryptocurrency. The Caporaso & Partners law firm will assist you for 30 days while opening your bank accounts or e-wallets abroad.
