Savings Personal Offshore Account

 

A saving account is a particular type of current account in which the funds deposited are remunerated by the bank through the payment of interests.

 

The conditions for remuneration vary based on the product. Thus, there are saving accounts that pay the interests for example monthly, quarterly or annually. Also, the remuneration can be linear (same interest for any balance), for balance or even in kind.

 

This type of accounts may also be subject to the payment of commissions, although from the popularization of the online banking, the tendency is to suppress the payment of commissions in saving products.

 

The services associated to a saving account also vary according to the institution. They can range from basic, as income and payments of checks or transfers, to others more complexes as debit or credit cards associated to the account.

 

They serve for three things:

  • To gain an interest during the time the funds are not used.
  • The funds can be drawn at any time through a voucher called "debit note".
  • The funds deposited earn a moderate interest. Also it must consider that they are added to the capital every six months or annually.

 

In Panama, you may also ask for a bank book, which is a document as a booklet issued by the credit entity (bank or savings bank) in which all the movements of capital in the related account are recorded. The notes are registered by the printers of the organization that has issued it or by an automatic teller.

 

In each detail line it is usually written down the date of the operation, the concept, the amount charged or credited and the balance of the account once the operation is completed.

 

Sometimes they can be used to withdraw money from an automatic teller in the same way as the debit card. Each institution determines the minimum amount of opening. (Usually between $1,000 and $2,000).

Time Deposit

The Deposit or time Deposit (ITD) is a financial operation by which a financial organization, in exchange of the maintenance of certain fixed monetary resources for a determined period of time, reports a financial yield fixed or variable, in form of money or kind.

 

The term time deposit comes from the fact that the time in which such investment remains fixed is set up at the beginning of the same: one year, three months, a month, etc.

 

When arriving the maturity date of the deposit, the person may withdraw all the money or part of it. If the agreed conditions allow it, he may also renew the deposit for an additional period of time; in this last case, if at the same maturity day a decision is not taken, the interests earned up to this moment are not lost, but days during which it may be generating new interests.

 

Whenever a deposit is signed up, it is necessary to consider the possible necessity of liquidity of the invested capital since some organizations receive an amount or percentage for the early cancellation of it, whereas in other cases, such commission for early cancellation does not exist. Each banking rate varies according to its banking regulations, business practices, etc. Under Panamanian laws, the minimum for establishing a time deposit, in the Panamanian banks is of US$10,000. Some of our banking recommendations offer up to 5% of annual interest in deposits USD or (Certificate of deposit).
