I'm escaping UK/EU and heading off to work overseas. Probably won't be coming back anytime soon.... I want to open an offshore account asap in order to receive salary. I want to have clear space between the bank and UK HMRC, so don't feel inclined to use the "international" branch of my existing UK bank (Lloyds). In previous expat lives I used to use Cater Allen, but they morphed into Abbey, and then into Santander - with corresponding drops in quality and value. I have a couple of existing accounts onshore in Russia, but they are about as secure as CMD's re-election prospects... I'm not rich and will be paying off mortgages with the income - so would prefer an account which doesn't require a massive balance in order to avoid account charges. Will be receiving in Euros and converting to Sterling, but might want to eventually open separate USD/ Euro/ GBP accounts - hence bonus if someone does a three-for-one account charges offer... Recommendations? p.s. Might also be interested in an offshore company package, if anyone knows of a good one-stop shop.
