Offshore Bank Accounts

Orion is not a bank or a financial institution and does not have any say in whether or not a bank account will be opened for your IBC or Trust. Each bank has its own due diligence process, and the decision on whether an account will be opened will be made by the bank after all its requirements have been satisfied.

However, Orion is very familiar with banking requirements and with the completion of the banks’ forms. As part of its offshore banking services, Orion offers to assist clients in opening offshore banking accounts. We can assist clients in opening an account with a bank in Belize specializing in offshore banking services, or with a bank in Austria.

We can assist in opening accounts in Austria in the following currencies:  Euro (EUR), US dollars (USD), Canadian dollars (CAD), Pounds Sterling (GBP), Australian dollars (AUS).
