Due diligence: Swiss banks need to show they have checked who their customers are, and how they came by their money.

  • Passport - If you apply by mail an authenticated copy is needed.
  • Proof of your economic background - documents showing what you do for a living (bank statement, work contract, tax return, company documents, license, etc...).
  • Proof of the origin of your deposits - documents showing the economic origin of your deposit. For example if you sell a house, proof of the sale, a copy of the estate agents' listing, etc...
  • Information about yourself and your deposits - Name, date of birth, address, etc... as well as how much you plan to deposit in the account, what you plan to do with the money once it is in the account.
  • If opening a company account, you send an apostilled copy of the certificate of incorporation to the bank providing your account.

Account application - using a notary public


You get copies of identity documents stamped by a notary public.

A Notary Public is a public officer commissioned by the the State to perform notarial acts. A Notary is an impartial witness. The notary is empowered to issue an apostille.

Apostille - Is a method of certifying a document for use in another country pursuant to the 1961 Hague Convention. With this certification by apostille, a document is entitled to recognition in the country of intended use, and no certification or legalization by the embassy or consulate of the foreign country where the document is to be used is required.

In practice this means you provide documentary evidence to this man that you are who you say you are, and/or that your company is what you say it is, and take an oath on the Bible.

Don't waste your money on sites offering offshore 'packages' for thousands of dollars. I bought one of those in 1997.

All I wanted was an (international) merchant account, so I could sell services from my website. These were thin on the ground in 1997, especially in the UK.

So I used one of those websites to get it.

After a couple of years the issuing bank went bankrupt. I also found out the yearly company registration fees weren't being passed on to the national registrar.

Result: I spent about £3000 for nothing. I had no merchant account, and my 'company' was in bad standing.

Others lost much more. Because it's offshore, the people offering these deals know you can't complain to your local authorities. So they can do what they like.

If you want genuine offshore services, give me a call.

For a small fee, I'll direct you to the the real thing, explain what you need to do, and hold your hand. You'll save yourself a ton of money and heartache.

Or you could take a chance, and buy one of those packages. After all, they can't all be crooks, can they?
