CIM Banque is closing the accounts of companies that do not have economic substance

We have been cooperating with the bank for years and it has always been a reliable partner. Now we see that CIM Banque is changing the rules and toughening the requirements to its clients.

Before the end of 2020, the bank administration intends to close all active accounts of business companies that do not have economic substance in the countries of their domiciliation. You have to realize that there is very little time remaining to solve this problem.

British companies have already had to face it. Companies from other countries are going to face it very soon. What can be done about it? You have two options:

  • Change nothing and acquire no substance. In this case, you will have to withdraw all the money from CIM Banque. This is what some of our clients have done: they have used our assistance in finding a new bank account in Europe and transferred their money there from the Banque.
  • Acquire economic substance in the country of company registration and supply documented proof of it to CIM Banque. Those who applied for our services earlier, are now completing the procedure of substance acquisition thus keeping their accounts with the Banque.

Less than two months remain before these opportunities will be gone! You have to act fast if this problem concerns you. Do you need a solution? Contact us without hesitation!

Risk diversification

Our readers know that we always urge entrepreneurs to open second and third accounts just in case. The current situation with CIM Banque is only one example of an emergency that may happen in the banking world. One to two months is required to set up a new bank account and there is no guarantee that you will be able to do it in time and save your money.

When you have a ‘spare’ account with another bank, you can react to such situations immediately. You can transfer money there regardless of whether you do not want to acquire substance or you have no time to do so.

Let us remind you once again: it takes time to open a bank account and the possibility of losing an existing account is always present and this does not depend on the location of your business, its type, nor the status of its beneficiaries.
