You can take most advantages of a bank account in Germany

Bank account for German Citizens Abroad

About 15 million people outside Germany, Austria and Switzerland speak German fluently. Of some people, it is the mother language, of others a learned foreign language.

Many of them feel connected with Germany. So why should one not hold part of ones assets in Germany – at least at a German bank? Quite some facts speak in favour. And for you, being someone who knows the language and culture, it is easier than for others to find a good bank that accepts you as a customer.

German abroad.

Everywhere on earth are German speaking people. Some of them really appreciate the German financial services. Are you one of them yet?

Germany is a paradise for bank customers

Especially, if you want to hold or grow your assets outside your country, a bank in Germany is favourable. Just like non-taxpayers in Germany, you do not pay taxes on capital income.

You receive 100 percent of the interest and dividends without any deductions credited to your bank account. And even without deductions of bank charges. It is prohibited for German banks to charge fees for the crediting of capital income.

No taxes, almost no bank charges!

In addition, there are free savings accounts (call money, VISA-Sparen) and many cheap investments (purchase of shares and bonds, fund savings plans and direct savings plans on individual shares).

In almost no other country one can find such a variety in detail. And this without or only low bank charges.

On this special web portal, we provide information about investments in Germany, give tips and instructions and are available for advice and ideas.

International Payments

With a current account in Germany, you can participate conveniently and cheaply in European payments. Transfers within the SEPA area (33 European countries) only take 0 to a maximum of 2 days.

International transfers are also possible from most German bank accounts.

At transfers in the currency Euro to another account in Euros, most German banks do not charge any fees.

Cash position in Euro

If you want to hold a cash position in Euros, it is advisable to use a current or savings account in Germany, because

  • Germany is the economic core of Europe. If it really should come to a splitting of the common currency, then the Euros in Germany will belong to the “harder” part. This means currency gains!
  • Germany is the country with the best deposit insurance. Anywhere in the European Union, 100,000 Euros are stipulated by law. In Germany, there are private banks that offer a deposit insurance in the millions or there are state-owned banks with an unlimited deposit insurance.
