How to open a bank account for Belize companies

Having a business bank account is of vital significant in managing your business finances. To open a business bank account for your Belize company, you may go for the following ways:

Application with local banks in Belize

Belize is a relative newcomer in the field of international financial services with the introduction of International Business Companies Act 1990. International banking laws were first promulgated with the passing of International Banking Act,1996. The Offshore banking sector is categorized into 2 classes: - Class “A” unrestricted license and Class “B” restricted license permitted to only international banking services specified in its license.

Two major regulatory bodies monitoring financial sector are Belize Central Bank and Belize International Financial Service Commission (IFSC). There are several types of financial institutions in Belize: domestic commercial banks, credit unions, offshore Class A banks, offshore Class B banks. Belize financial system is quite small, consisting of 5 domestic commercial banks, 6 international banks, a mutual fund, 14 credit unions and 17 insurance companies. Belize banks maintain a very high liquidity ratio at 24 percent, one of the highest in the world. To compare, most banks in the US only reach 3-4% liquidity ratio. The higher, the better.

Opening an offshore bank account for your Belize business

You can open remotely without a signatory travel, bank account deposit in such overseas banks is also quite low and reasonable.
