Offshore or international banking is a term that refers to placing financial assets in accounts operated by a bank or other financial institution outside of your home country. Those accounts are governed by the laws and regulations that apply to all financial institutions operating in that international location. Since those laws may vary from one country to the next, anyone interested in opening offshore accounts will want to become acquainted with how banking is done in a given nation.
Offshore incorporation is a corporation or limited liability company that has been formed outside of your country of residence. One is well advised to choose the country of incorporation wisely.
