    Know Your Client, also known as KYC, refers to numerous due diligence activities performed not only by financial institutions but also other regulated companies in order to retrieve any relevant information about their clients before and in the course of doing business with them. Every financial and business entity is responsible for adopting and implementing various KYC procedures and regulations.

    Know Your Client policies typically include procedures like:
    Collecting and analysing a person's identity information and looking into the real beneficiary of the company and business accounts
    Name-matching with lists of political parties (searching for Politically Exposed persons or PEPs)
    Determining a client's likelihood of committing money laundering, terrorist financing, identity theft or other offences
    Creating expectation profiles based on a client's transactional behaviour, and monitoring any deviations from this profile
    Anti-money laundering, also known as AML, is a set of laws, regulations and other procedures designed to eliminate the practice of generating income from illegal activity. Typically, money launderers hide the real source of their income through a series of steps that make it look like money derived from illegal activities was earned legitimately. Anti-money laundering policies aim to help institutions spot and look into possible cases.

    Globalisation and the global information exchange system
    KYC and AML policies are designed to offer solutions for eliminating the numerous risks deriving from the fact that financial institutions do not know their clients. On the other hand, these same policies also have a tendency to conflict with a private individual's general expectations of confidentiality and privacy.

    With the rapid advance of globalisation over the last few decades, security concerns have become a top priority, not only for national regulators, but for the international community more generally. In response to rising concerns over money laundering, an intergovernmental organisation called the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF) was established in 1989 during the G7 summit in Paris, and shortly afterwards it issued recommendations on money laundering and terrorism financing. All the recommendations are intended to be put into action at a national level through legislation and other legally binding measures. In addition to the Know Your Client and Anti-money laundering procedures described above, FATF recommendations require states to co-operate internationally and exchange relevant information in investigations.

    A new international standard, called AEOI or the automatic exchange of information, will come into force in participating countries to ensure that tax authorities exchange data relating to taxpayers' bank accounts. The main goal of AEOI is to make tax evasion impossible. AEOI stipulates that banks must report information about bank and safekeeping accounts to the domestic tax authorities. This information is then exchanged with the tax authorities in AEOI partner countries.

    Possible solutions to protect confidentiality
    Some jurisdictions consider revealing the name of an account holder to be a criminal act. The privacy of a bank's clients is protected by law and regarded as being similar in nature to the confidentiality between doctor and patient or lawyer and client. Although privacy is seen as a fundamental principle and greatly protected in these jurisdictions, law enforcement access can be granted to the relevant information in the context of a criminal investigation.

    However, if no criminal accusation has been made, offshore banks offer the maximum possible confidentiality and security. Offshore banking jurisdictions are designed to protect assets from domestic litigation and other civil matters, such as contested estates or divorce. An even higher level of confidentiality and anonymity is available through other asset-holding vehicles — for example, international business companies and offshore trusts.

  • Requirement: low-tax regimeDatum06.07.2023 10:08
    Thema von DavisThompson im Forum Dies ist ein Forum in...

    Jurisdictions and countries offering a low-tax regime to domiciled and/or foreign companies are most commonly referred to as 'tax havens'. Generally speaking, a tax haven is a jurisdiction in which taxes are either applied at a low rate or not at all. Well-known examples include Panama, Belize, the Seychelles, the Cayman Islands, the Isle of Man and Hong Kong.

    An offshore company is a company established in order to operate and perform business activities outside the jurisdiction in which it was officially incorporated, as well as outside (or off the shores of) the place of residence of its directors, shareholders and beneficial owners, which may be crucial for corporate planning in certain legal systems. Usually, an offshore company is established in order to receive certain legal or tax benefits, to allow for a specific corporate structure or to protect the confidentiality of the beneficial owner and/or asset holder.

  • Opening a bank account in LatviaDatum12.11.2022 15:54
    Thema von DavisThompson im Forum Dies ist ein Forum in...

    Latvia is located in Northern Europe and is one of three Baltic States. It has been a member of the European Union since 2004, a member of the Eurozone since 2014 and the 35th member country of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) since 2016.

    The Latvian banking and financial sector is relatively small, heavily concentrated in the capital, Riga, and has a high proportion of foreign capital. There are currently 23 banks operating on the Latvian market; 16 of them are domestic banks, seven are branches of foreign banks. Most Latvian banks are privately owned and operate as universal banks, but some specialize in corporate banking and/or wealth management. Most foreign banks have their origins in the Scandinavian countries: Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark.

    Out of all banks operating in Latvia, 14 offer corporate banking and other services to non-residents. Latvian banks have actively sought to attract deposits from non-residents. In fact, by the end of 2015, deposits from non-residents had overtaken those from residents of Latvia.

    Advantages of opening a bank account in Latvia
    There are several reasons why non-resident individuals and companies might decide to open a bank account in one of the Latvian banks:

    Latvian banks offer a wide range of services to non-residents, including retail, retail and corporate banking, as well as online trading and brokerage services.
    Latvian banks employ English and Russian speaking staff and their websites are available in different languages.

    KYC procedures are straightforward and simple, with some banks offering their customers the option to open an account online.
    Latvia is a member state of the EU and in the Eurozone and facilitates cash transfers to other member countries.
    Latvia uses the IBAN system, which makes international payments easier.
    General Requirements
    The procedure and required documents to open a bank account for a non-resident business differ from bank to bank. In general, all the documents you are likely to need can be sorted into two lists: the standard corporate documents that most banks require and which are usually listed on the bank's website, and specific documents that banks require non-residents to make sure that the owner or beneficiary of the company has sufficient funds and verify his or her background and learn more about the activities of the company. These documents are not usually found on the bank's website and in many cases are dependent on the customer opening the account.

    In addition to the bank's standard account application forms, other commonly required documents include:

    Certificate of Incorporation (with apostille)
    Certificate of Incorporation and Articles of Incorporation (with apostille)
    Minutes of the board meeting approving the opening of a bank account
    General power of attorney (with apostille)
    Documents confirming the ownership of the beneficial owner(s) in the company
    Copies of the beneficiaries' passports
    Copy of Account Manager's passport
    List of signatures and samples of seal impressions
    As previously mentioned, banks have the right to request additional documents during the pre-account inspection phase and later if the compliance officers believe that information is missing or if the bank wants to better understand the nature of the customer's business.

    Corporate banking for non-residents in Latvia
    More than half of banks in Latvia provide corporate banking and other services to non-residents. These banks have their differences, and before you decide which one is best for you, there are certain things you need to consider. While most banks offer multilingual services and you will most likely be able to speak to your private manager in English or Russian, AS “Rietumu Banka” offers its services in Chinese and French in addition to Latvian, English and Russian. AS Rietumu Banka offers retail banking, corporate banking and online brokerage for non-resident individuals and businesses. In addition, it is possible to open a bank account through an online application system.
