  • What are the benefits of opening an offshore bank account?
    There are multiple benefits of owning an offshore bank account, here are just a few examples: It is possible to hold cash in an offshore account in a range of different currencies. This is often useful for people who are paid in a currency different to their bank back home e.g. a UK national working in Europe, who is paid in Euros, but their bank in the UK doesn’t provide a Euro denominated account. Offshore accounts can help you protect your assets. Any assets that you hold in your home country, or the country you work in, may be subject to political or economic risk e.g. a French national who was working in Egypt during the 2011 revolution, and was paid in Egypt, could be exposed to the political changes.
  • What is an offshore bank account?
    An offshore bank account is a holding account that is opened outside of the account holder’s usual place of residence. An offshore bank account can either be opened in the name of an individual (personal account) or a company (corporate account).
