The Land Without A Banking Law: How To Start A Bank With A Thousand Dollars

Free sample

New Zealand is generally perceived as a high tax country and has consequently not been a target in the international campaign against offshore tax havens. The fact is that New Zealand offers secretive zero tax structures for offshore activities and perhaps even more remarkable, a legal framework that allows for virtually anyone to start a Bank without being subject to any capital or qualification requirements. New Zealand Offshore Finance Companies are Banks, both in a legal and practical sense, but not Registered Banks under supervision of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. While there are laws in New Zealand regulating financial activities, there are no regulatory entry barriers as such for the business of banking when services are offered to non-residents only (offshore). This book will teach you how to form and register a New Zealand Company online and how to obtain registration as a bona fide Financial Service Provider (FSP) with legal capacity to offer banking services to any number of clients, resident anywhere in the world. The regulatory framework and upcoming changes to the relevant legislation are explained.

A solid understanding of how banks operate is crucial to grasp the functioning of modern society. Banks are an intrinsic part of business, finance, and everyday life. Modern banking is regulated by a sophisticated set of laws and regulations that are constantly evolving. Banking Law and Practice from the Hong Kong Institute of Bankers outlines and explains these laws and regulations clearly and in detail.

This regulatory framework has a deep impact on banks, bankers, and anyone that deals with them, which is the overwhelming majority of society. This high level of impact makes Banking Law and Practice an important book as well as a necessary and authoritative reference for industry professionals, students, and the public at large.

Banking Law and Practice discusses a range of topics that have a direct bearing on the day-to-day operations of banks, from contracts to how to ensure safe and secure lending. It examines the development and current state of banking legislation and regulation and facilitates bankers and their institutions to shape their practice to meet all the necessary legal and regulatory requirements.

Students, industry professionals, and the public at large will welcome the thorough and clear explanations of the legal and regulatory framework in which banks operate. This book is essential reading for candidates studying for the HKIB Associateship Examination and anyone else seeking expert knowledge of the legal and regulatory structure affecting banks in Hong Kong.
