In most countries, opening a corporate bank account can be done for a foreign company, without having staff, an office or a local subsidiary. Thanks to our excellent professional relationships with global top tier banks and experience in this area, we always find banking solutions tailored to our Clients’ needs.

    • Global banks continue to tighten corporate bank account opening procedures, their internal compliance departments completing more thorough due diligence of new customers. For further information on global banking trends, refer to this banking trend page;
    • When opening a corporate bank account abroad, it is important our Clients are aware of their personal and corporate tax obligations in their country of residence and domicile; and they will fulfil those obligations: for instance, French residents are required to disclose their personal and corporate bank accounts to the local tax authority when filing their income statements. Let us know if you need Healy Consultants help to clarify your annual reporting obligations.
