Personal Account in Macedonia Remotely

With a global fight to increase tax transparency and tighten banking regulations on the rise and both national and international regulators getting ever more tight and regimented as to the rules and policies they apply, fewer and fewer financial institutions are prepared to open bank accounts for non-residents remotely. The Macedonia bank that the International Wealth consultants suggest you set up an account with is one of the few such institutions offering corporate and personal account setup for both residents and non-residents. Alongside this, you are free to rent a deposit box therewith to store valuables, documents, and securities, or enjoy other banking services, including online banking.
