Offshore Account Setup – What to Do
Setting up your offshore bank account is as easy as discussing your needs with an experienced professional. Use the number or form on this page. You can discuss the information needed for popular jurisdictions and someone can provide support with opening a new bank account. Most offshore banks will require an eligible introducer. This is someone who already has a relationship with the bank. This organization is an eligible introducer for many financial institutions throughout the world.
Common items that may be necessary when setting up offshore bank accounts:
- Application forms with original signatures
- Valid passport copy or driver’s license
- Banking references
- Corporate legal documents
Offshore banks have different requirements. Once the offshore banking setup documents have been processed, the confirmation is sent typically via email. At that time the bank will wait for a wire transfer of initial deposit in order to activate your new account. Some expenses include opening fee, additional banking cards (if applicable), courier and other expenses. Again, these will vary between the offshore banking account providers.
Once the bank account is active, you typically receive online access to create your user account and password. You may also receive items such as an easy-to-use digital signature device, test key table and other enabling tools to access your account balance and perform transactions quickly, easily, privately and securely.
