Offshore Banking

Offshore Banking ImageIf you’re thinking of upping sticks and heading abroad, or if you already own an overseas home or you perhaps regularly work abroad for your company, you may benefit substantially from an offshore bank account.

Expatriates, those who own a property abroad or people termed as having an ‘international lifestyle,’ can all potentially profit from an offshore bank account.  By its very nature such an account is flexible – and when you’re living abroad or sending money back and forth between more than one country or transacting in more than one currency, then the very thing you need is flexibility from an offshore account. Common misconceptions of offshore banking include theories on hiding money, a service reserved for the rich and famous or a plan to evade or even avoid taxation!

Many of the leading high street banks offer offshore banking services to clients – so accessible is offshore banking to all.  Basically offshore banking is the management of financial assets from a jurisdiction other than the one in which you live.  For some people it does have very real and legitimate taxation advantages, but for the vast majority of us, it is all about simplicity of money management.

Offshore banking in its simplest form suits those who make the very most of the fact that we can travel, live and work anywhere, invest in properties overseas or different money markets and who think outside the small box that is the UK.  If you want to know more about the fundamental basics and benefits of offshore banking – speak to any of the main banks such as HSBC, NatWest, Barclays or Lloyds and learn about the services they offer.  This will give you a good grounding and help you see whether an offshore bank account could actually be of value to you.

The headquarter of Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank If you have just re-located to another country, or it is something you are currently considering, one of the first things you should consider is whether your current bank account is going to be suitable once you leave the UK.
