Making An Offshore Demand Deposit Account Work For You

Demand Deposit AccountAn offshore demand deposit account can be a bit confusing for people who do not understand how it works. Our goal is to help you find ways to make an offshore account work for you.

What is a Demand Account?

To open a personal or business account at a banking institution can be confusing for customers who aren’t familiar with the technical jargon that belongs to the banking discourse community; and unfortunately, bankers don’t always help their customers understand important terms like “demand deposit.”

A demand deposit account refers to personal or business checking, regular savings, or money market savings accounts. They are also called “Now” accounts because you have immediate access to them through checks and an ATM/debit card. These accounts don’t always accrue interest, but if they do, the rates are lower than certificates of deposits or investment accounts. However, these accounts give you immediate access to your funds and are low-risk.

How Offshore Accounts Work For You

In places like the U.S., consumers and businesses have to pay taxes on any interest accrued on their checking and/or savings accounts. For instance, if your personal savings accrues $10 or more, you have to report that to the IRS. By opening a personal or business account abroad in places like Belize, you not only get more privacy and return on your investment, but you also gain new financial opportunities.
