Here is the situation. I basically want to accomplish two things. First taxes. Second, I live in a country where eft (bank deposits) are not available with any of the affiliate companies I work with (adsense, clickbank, etc...). Therefor I want a bank account in a country where this is possible, preferably a swiss one. With a bank account I then get a debit card and I can get the funds in a few days from requesting it from these affiliate companies. Now, I wait for the check to be delivered first and then the banks to clear them which takes a minimum of one month. This is not manageable anymore, so I need to change the payment method to a foreign bank. I would like to open it from my location (online, fax, email, phone, mail), with no personal trips to that country. Then I will need to change the details in all these accounts. Most accounts won't be a problem, except adsense maybe. In adsense the country field is not available for editing, but I've read you can add a foreign bank account. Anyone has experience in this? I've spent a few hours researching this matter, but I always find contradicting information. Some say there need to be minimum deposits of many thousand dollars when opening a swiss bank account, the other say there's no minimum deposit. Some say they had a lot of trouble getting the money out, which sounds plausible since banks need money, otherwise why would they have you as a client? If anyone has any first hand experience I would love to hear it. Also any tips or traps info is greatly appreciated. I need the bank account within a month.
