Offshore savings accounts
Offshore savings accounts from Barclays
Offshore savings could give you the possibility of tax advantages and financial flexibility as well as competitive interest rates. There's a wide choice of offshore savings accounts from Barclays to choose from. They include savings accounts, and other offshore accounts that, while tying up your money for a little longer, also offer better potential returns.
Like all of our international banking services, our offshore savings accounts are easy to apply for and enjoy.
Offshore savings rates
All the Barclays offshore savings accounts shown here offer varying rates:
If you want a fixed rate of interest on your savings and don't mind your money being tied up for a fixed period of at least a month, a Treasury Deposit may be a good option. You can choose from a wide range of currencies and, once the deposit is opened, your interest rate remains fixed for the term of the deposit so you know exactly the rate of return you will get.
Liquidity Management Service
This service is available for those with a minimum of £1m to invest in sterling, euros or US dollars. Our Liquidity Management Service is an accessible low-risk and tax-efficient way to grow your wealth, and offers competitive yields on cash-based deposits from a choice of carefully selected financial institutions.
An offshore bank account with Barclays could make good financial sense if you live, work or conduct business away from your home country. It means that you can:
- Make transactions in different currencies easily through a variety of international bank accounts
- Take advantage of our financial planning services, including referrals to our preferred tax advisers, Ernst & Young*
- Protect and grow your wealth through offshore savings and investments
International bank accounts
Our international bank account is available in sterling, US dollars or euros and offers easy access to your funds for all your day to day banking needs. Everyone holding one of our International Bank Accounts gets a Barclays Connect debit card for sterling accounts or a Barclays Wealth card for euro and US dollar accounts. These cards offer easy access to your money from over 600,000 cash machines around the world displaying the VISA sign and can be used to pay for goods and services at more than 18 million outlets worldwide.
