How to Transfer Money to Your Offshore Bank Account?

by Confidential Banking #1 Merchant Processing Services

If you wish to open or fund an offshore banking account for yourself or your business, there are several ways to do so. Some are secure, economical, and easy, while the other few may be cumbersome to understand.

THE LEGITIMATE REASONS TO USE OFFSHORE BANKING

Banking done in the land that is not your own provides excellent asset protection, i.e., more privacy and wealth security from the unstable local politics and financial systems. An offshore payment processor or the acquiring bank generally provides services to international merchants classified as high risk to protect the liquidity of their business.

There is nothing wrong with setting up an offshore banking account unless you do so for illegal purposes. Expats and international executive professionals and companies use this method to access their funds from anywhere in the world.

Opening an offshore bank account benefits you in multiple ways. You do not always require proactive bookkeeping, there are fewer restrictions, and it can help you considerably save on taxes (if managed well). Offshore domiciles are more flexible, have dedicated customer support, and the services are often less expensive. This can be convenient if you have a secondary base outside the home country or travel abroad frequently.

The way media portrays offshore banking brings about negative connotations. However, what makes for compelling front-page headlines is not always certain. It may not be as straightforward to navigate in the offshore world as it seems, and no one size might fit all. But, contracting with the right service provider can offer you tailor-made solutions.

TRANSFERRING FUNDS

Here are the three most reliable means for funding your bank account outside your homeland:

1.     USE WIRE TRANSFER

Oneof the most common, straightforward, affordable, and low-risk methods for transferring funds to your offshore account is wire transfer. It has no limit on transfer, making a practical way out for larger transactions. A significant downside to sending a wire is substantial return fees if the transfer gets denied by the receiving party, as well as the time it takes in smaller jurisdictions. However, a little prep work beforehand takes you a long way in preventing transfer rejections or account freezing.

2.     CONVERT CRYPTOCURRENCY

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and many others have possibly been put forward as the ultimate mechanism to help you store funds safely. You can freeze their value to that of a foreign currency until moving them to your account. These can directly be connected to the account and be utilized in the destination country. If the bank account is not crypto-friendly, there is a risk of temporary or permanent closure. Besides, you can also buy gold or silver and liquidate those holdings for cash to fund your account.

3.     LIQUIDATE PHYSICAL ASSETS

First, if you own silver or gold, such as in a vault offshore, you can certainly sell it off and have the funds wired to your bank account. Second, if you own precious metals in the home country, you can sell them and then buy these in the destination country. Finally, in the case where your gold or silver may be lying at the offshore bank, request the authorities to liquidate the assets and deposit funds in your account. Just follow the applicable rules and regulations of selling and buying precious metals and other essential requirements.

IN THE END

Regardless of the situation you own an offshore account, it always pays to learn how you can deposit funds to your bank account for obvious reasons. Contact a reputable merchant account service provider to know more.
