When answering queries about how to choose and open a new Swiss bank account, consultants from Goldblum and Partners will offer you several steps.
Before opening a new account, banks usually require:
- Personal information of the future depositor, including personal data: name, address, profession, date of birth and detailed contact information
- Passport-sized photo
- Financial documents (they depend on the profession and usually contain documents proving the funds' origin)
In order to apply for opening an account on behalf of a legal body, a client is to provide the bank with following:
- Copies of all essential documentation of your company
- One copy of the passports of all the shareholders
- One copy of the director's passport
- All required additional documents
The minimal deposit is 300,000 Swiss Francs. The opening procedure takes from between one day to one month (this depends on the sum and other circumstances).
Opening a new account is rather difficult for non-residents, however, foreigners residing in a country like Switzerland can navigate the process easily. Goldblum and Partners can provide full juridical and informational support concerning opening a new account.
Protecting confidentiality is a fundamental principle in Switzerland. Confidentiality protection between banks and depositors is similar to the confidentiality between lawyers and their clients. Each account is linked to a definite individual who can be identified. The vital importance of the Swiss banking sphere is significant for the state and for the global financial community. The financial climate therefore is stable and predictable, as Swiss financial management is conservative and prudent.
