A Swiss private bank can offer asset protection for clients with a substantial liquid net worth. Offshore asset protection is becoming increasingly popular with clients seeking to safeguard their savings from litigation, punitive taxation or possible future divorce settlements by distancing themselves from their assets in the eyes of the law. Swiss private banking consultants are highly experienced and can offer you the very best advice and services.
Bank secrecy is not lifted for tax evasion. This is because failure to report income or assets is not considered a crime in Switzerland. As such, neither the Swiss government, nor any other government, can obtain information about your bank account. They must first convince a Swiss judge that you have committed a serious crime punishable by the Swiss Penal Code.
Bank secrecy will not be lifted for private matters such as inheritance or divorce if you have kept your banking information strictly confidential. It is up to plaintiffs to prove that the account exists if they wish the judge to pursue the case.
