If you can invest $10 million, then you can consider almost all Central American and Caribbean countries offering international banking. It also includes Puerto Rico due to its United States territory status. Thus getting access to U.S.-based correspondent banks, merchant card/credit card services, etc. is much easier.

Mexico leads among the Caribbean countries requiring an investment of just over $25. This amount is also suitable to open a bank in some quality Asian and European jurisdictions, including Switzerland.


Other non-monetary issues to consider

Establishment cost is likely to vary, depending on the person/group undertaking the task associated with several issues.

·       The banking experience’ of the investor group is one such consideration to be taken into account. It is important to identify people to serve as board directors and officers for the application procedure. It also includes ongoing operations. There are some jurisdictions that are not that stringent concerning the banking background of the ownership group.

·       Also should be considered the investor group’s nationality, fund source, background checks, etc.

·       The decision to select a location also is influenced by double tax treaties to optimize tax efficiency. Offshore Bank In UAE Dubai and Puerto Rico will be feasible as they offer lucrative incentives to potential investors.

Coming up with a high-quality plan will ensure more positive results, thereby saving money, time and energy. Hence, the business plan is better drafted by an experienced external service provider or an attorney. This will however add up to the establishment cost.

·       There should also be in place AML (anti-money laundering) procedures and policies along with KYC (Customer) guidelines. For this, the prevailing best industry practices should be considered. It is crucial when trying to obtain foreign correspondent bank relationships.

·       If your bank plans allow U.S. customers, then submission of GIIN (Global Intermediary Id. No.) is mandatory with the U.S. IRS. This is to comply with FATCA regulations. Otherwise, appropriate paperwork needs to be performed with FATCA. This way, the bank’s transactions are not likely to come under ‘backup withholding’ regulations. Non-compliant banks are to pay 35% tax of gross amount of wire transaction carried out via the U.S. Federal Reserve. It also includes other FATCA-compliant banks located outside the United States. When you BUY OFFSHORE BANK, you need to certify of not catering to U.S. customers. This is mandatory if you desire to avoid prevailing regulations or comply with the U.S. IRS.

Final steps

On selection of the jurisdiction, the ownership is to incorporate the bank with formal application submission to obtain a valid license. It should also accompany crucial documents. The bank has to follow-up as well as answer questions posed by the regulators. On getting satisfactory answers, the authorities will provide the license, thus completing the OFFSHORE BANK FOR SALE procedure.
