FAQs

1. How can I open an offshore company account?

An offshore company account can only be opened by the CEO of a company or owner(s) who has completed the identification procedure.

If you are not the head of the company, but an authorized person, you also need to complete the identification procedure. Afterwards, you'll be required to submit a power of attorney or permission with e-signature by the company head to complete the steps to open an international company account.

To open an offshore company account, you can visit dsbc.eu and click the “Open an account” button on the top right menu. After that, a new landing will appear, in the select box “Type of DSBC Financial Europe Account”, please choose the “corporate account option”. Then you need to fulfil mandatory information and submit. You will receive a confirmation email from DSBC Financial Europe and our Relationship Manager will get in touch with you for documents and onboarding advisory.

We also offer international current accounts for personal usage.

Each member is identified with a unique SWIFT/ BIC code.

To this day, SWIFT is the biggest and most efficient tool for international money transfer, with over 11.000 member institutions in over 200 countries, sending over 5 billions financial messages globally every year.

3. What is an offshore current account (overseas account, international company account)?

An account held by a foreign bank is often referred to as an offshore account. You can either reside in London or New York or almost anywhere and still open an offshore current account in the capital of Singapore. There are no physical boundaries to possess an international company account. Or global companies whose ownership or business activities lie outside of Europe like some offshore nationalities/jurisdictions: Hong Kong, Singapore, British Virgin Islands, Cayman, Belize, Seychelles, etc can open overseas company accounts in Europe.

Moreover, It is remarkably easy to contact service providers and make an online registration for an offshore current account as long as your institution satisfies the eligible criterias.

Opening and owning an international company account is extremely beneficial for enterprises that do business globally because of the financial advantages and the manoeuvrability it brings.

For example, a large number of costs and fees will be less charged for money remittances by using an overseas current account which no traditional banks can offer. Also, having an offshore business account helps corporates avoid political risks and put their assets under protection.

In conclusion, an offshore corporate account gives enterprises a better, simpler way to make transactions without worrying about hidden fees. Everything that an DSBC Financial Europe overseas account offers is completely transparent.

4. What Does SWIFT Code Represent?

SWIFT works by assigning each member institution a unique ID code that identifies the bank name, country, city, and branch.

For example DSBC Financial Europe BIC code is: DSFE LT 21 XXX

  • The first 4 characters represent our institution (DSFE - DSBC Financial Europe).
  • The 2 following characters represent the country we are based in (LT - Lithuania).
  • The other 2 following characters might be used to represent the location/city or a combination of numbers based on the organization's liking.
  • There might be an additional 3 characters, which are the institution’s branches.

7. What are the differences between EU Corporate Accounts and EU offshore accounts?

The main differences lie in the location that a legal entity incorporates. EU Corporate accounts are applied for companies that are operating businesses in the EU, while EU Offshore Accounts are opened for entities that run business activities outside of Europe. For example, if your enterprise is licensed to operate in regions within the European Union territory, such as German, Italy, Spain, Sweden, etc. Then the most suitable current account for your institution should be a corporate account.

On the other hand, financial institutions like DSBC Financial Europe also provide money remittance service and offshore company account opening service for establishments doing business outside of the EU. There are little to no limits for enterprises operating anywhere in the world legally when owning an EU offshore account.

However, there are some of the constraints on opening EU offshore accounts in specific regions due to the European commission's charter. Find out more about regional terms and conditions.
