How we do Banking?

Our bank account opening services are not designed to facilitate tax avoidance or Anti Money Laundering/Financing of Terrorism Regulations. We also do not offer tax advice and so urge our clients seeking international account opening assistance to speak to their tax lawyers to fully understand their tax obligations. It is important that they fully understand their personal and corporate tax obligations when undertaking this service.

While opening international accounts has become increasingly difficult due to regulations, IBG Consulting is well informed to assist clients in the most professional manner ensuring every detail is understood.
