Add to my collection

We take a global view of your banking needs. Our bank accounts for non-resident clients are designed to operate internationally and come with the full range of facilities that you expect from a major international bank.

Non-resident bank account services

You can have a UK bank account or one located in an offshore centre, depending on which is best for your financial and tax-planning needs. Wherever your account is located, you have the confidence of knowing that these are well-run, stable territories and that the world-renowned Barclays name is behind the service.

Full-featured accounts

Our bank accounts offer all the functions required for international banking, as well as meeting your day-to-day needs.

Customise your account

We offer a choice of location, currency and account type. You can choose to have your account located in the UK or offshore in Jersey or the Isle of Man. For currencies, you can choose between sterling, euros or US dollars.

Tax-planning opportunities

Interest gross can be an obvious benefit, you may have further tax planning opportunities. An independent adviser can help you determine your residence (and, where relevant, ‘domicile’) status for tax purposes, and help you come up with strategies to gain benefits and avoid pitfalls .

You have sole responsibility for the management of your tax and legal affairs, including making any applicable filings and payments and complying with any applicable laws and regulations. We have not provided and will not provide you with tax or legal advice and recommend that you obtain your own independent tax and legal advice tailored to your individual circumstances.

Easy money management

You can manage your everyday banking at a time that suits you with telephone and internet banking. For those with more complex requirements, we offer a Relationship Service.

Your online security is a top priority for us. As well as using the latest security technology to handle your electronic transactions, we provide you with a unique membership number and pass code so you can access your UK bank account when you want. For international payments made online, we offer a discount on the standard tariff (subject to a maximum daily limit of £50,000 or local currency equivalent).
