Swiss Account Opening Made Easy
Swiss account opening is very easy when you have the right banking relationships and connections. We can introduce you to one of the best Swiss banks for your online private banking needs. In fact, if you purchase a Switzerland bank account introduction through us we will not only introduce you to one online Swiss bank, but we will also introduce you to another online Swiss bank which also accepts lower minimum deposits from its clients. These are the two best banks for the common person who is not going to travel to Switzerland to open up his or her bank account.
Residents of the following countries may apply for this Swiss account at one of our banks in Switzerland (it is not UBS): Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxemburg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxemburg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and the UK. So Swiss bank account opening is easily available for citizens of many countries.
You can open up the account by mail and you only need a passport or drivers license and a utility bill witnessed and notarized by a local bank near where you live. The minimum deposit requirement is 1,000 CHF for one of the banks and 5,000 CHF for the other one, but this very low amount does not have to be maintained in your Swiss account.
After the Swiss account is established, you can apply for one of several different debit cards so you can draw money out of your Swiss account anywhere you happen to be in the world. Now is the time to get your numbered Swiss bank account while they are still available.
Will I have a secret numbered Swiss bank account ?
Bank-client confidentiality, described in Art. 47 of the Swiss Banking Act of 1934 guarantees a confidential relationship between client and bank. The Swiss insist that nothing about that will change. The Swiss government made it clear that there will be no so-called "fishing expeditions" allowed and no automatic disclosure of information, which is what critics have demanded. Bank-client confidentiality remains in place for all foreign clients not under suspicion with a Swiss account, the authorities said.
The Swiss account announcement said that they will make it very difficult for the exchange of tax and financial information and only if the following conditions are met: 1) the foreign tax authority must submit a written request, indicating sufficient grounds for suspicion of tax evasion or tax fraud. 2) the taxable person must be identified in the request. 3) the facts of the tax evasion must be adequately described. 4) a specific bank or branch must be named. 5) Taxable persons who do not consent to Swiss administrative assistance may appeal against this process. Alleged tax dodgers cannot be held accountable for prior violations.
So in conclusion, as long as you maintain the secrecy of your Swiss account the Swiss will guarantee it is kept secret also. It would be good to utilize a private wire transfer service to place funds into your Swiss account to help facilitate that your account is kept secret and private. We have a very inexpensive service available for transferring money privately to your Switzerland bank account so that you can insure your Swiss bank account remains private at all times.
