4 Non-CRS Destinations Offering Banking Privacy in 2024.

In today's financial landscape, questions about tax residency have become commonplace, spurred by regulations like the Common Reporting Standard (CRS). Designed to combat tax evasion, CRS requires banks in participating countries to share financial data with others, making it increasingly challenging to maintain banking privacy.

For those seeking to safeguard their wealth and privacy, exploring non-CRS countries can offer viable solutions.

Here are four destinations worth considering:

Armenia: Emerging as a promising banking destination, Armenia offers straightforward account opening procedures and a range of banking services. With high-interest rates on local currencies and exposure to both Western and Eastern currencies, Armenia presents an attractive option for those seeking banking privacy.

Cambodia: Positioned as one of the last frontiers in the global economy, Cambodia offers a growing banking sector with the presence of both local and international banks. Despite its emerging status, Cambodia's economy has remained stable, attracting capital from various sources. Expats may find opportunities to open accounts with Malaysian and Western banks operating in the country.

Dominican Republic: A popular destination for expats from Canada and the US, the Dominican Republic boasts a decent banking environment with a variety of local and international banks. While concerns about banking in developing world institutions persist, the Dominican Republic offers viable banking options for those seeking privacy.

Guatemala: Often overlooked in favor of neighboring Belize, Guatemala is gaining attention as a potential destination for expats and investors. With local banks dominating the market and international players like Citi expanding their presence, Guatemala presents opportunities for those exploring internationalization and immigration strategies.

By considering these non-CRS destinations, individuals can diversify their financial holdings while maintaining privacy and compliance with relevant regulations. It's essential to conduct thorough research and seek professional advice to ensure legal compliance and make informed decisions regarding offshore banking.
