Hi all, who can help me with the opening of a swiss bank account? At least an explanation of different account type also with not too big of an initial deposit.
Point me in the right direction, a company name, phone number, etc...
You know they're no longer a tax haven, right? You also know the accounts are no longer anonymous, right? And you know that international transfers will still have all your personal details attached, right?
Its easy opening the account.Google how to open it. The hardest part is the Commissioner of oaths stamp.They don't accept the normal one. Cant find out where to get the one they need.Might be at the embassy though.
As long as you don't deposit your money in Swiss Franc's they don't add tax. So Euro's Pounds and dollars is the preferred currency.
Then you need to invest that currency to get interest.Whereby Franc's gain the normal interest at bank rates.
I think the only appeal a Swiss bank account has these days is status.
Not true. If your currency in your country is at risk of collapsing (hmmmm maybe like SA....) The Swiss banks do provide refuge. And they supply credit card facilities linked to your Swiss account, and your funds is internationally available.
