Assistance in Opening A Bank/Brokerage Account in The Bahamas
This is a service that we offer to our clients to facilitate the above. We cannot guarantee the opening of an account, but we use our contacts and knowledge of Bahamian based banks/brokers to achieve opening the account as smoothly as possible.
If you wish for our assistance in opening a corporate account here, our fee is $300.
“Assistance” means that we will introduce the corporation to a bank/broker with our guarantee that the corporation is a bona fide and duly incorporated Bahamian corporation. We cannot and do not assume any responsibility for the decisions or actions of the bank/broker. Our obligation is fulfilled when you have submitted your application and bank/broker-required documents, signature cards, etc., to us and we have tendered them to the bank/broker on your behalf. If you fail or refuse to fill the papers out correctly, or submit required documentation or for any other reason the bank/broker rejects your account, we assume no responsibility. Our fee is non-refundable.
Banks/brokers will generally need to perform basic and rapid background checks on clients, therefore clients will generally need to provide the following:
- Notarized copies of passport
- Bank reference
- Professional reference
- Confirmation of place of residence (e.g. a utility bill, credit card statement dated not earlier than 3 months or included in your professional reference)
- Amount required to open the account will vary according to the bank/broker, but usually starts at $5,000.
There exists over 350 banks within the Bahamas of which clients can choose from ~200. Clients normally can have a choice of size and nationality, whether the bank is Swiss, Canadian, Australian, English, etc. Accounts can also be held in any major currency.
