Re: Swiss Bank Account Closed by Bank

View Post
I am a permanent resident of the U.S. I own a condominium in Switzerland. I maintain a small Swiss bank account to pay condo-related bills (taxes, insurance, telephone, electricity, etc.) The bank has now closed my account, giving the reason that all U.S. residents' Swiss bank accounts are being closed. If I were a U.S. citizen living in Switzerland, no problem. Any thoughts or suggestions on how I'm going to pay the bills? (The bank was paying them).
I'm in the same boat, Lorelei. Joined this forum to try to figure out how to proceed with setting up an account I can easily pay Swiss bills, taxes, insurance, condo fees, etc... There has to be a better way than wire transfer for every transaction!

I was recently contacted by my bank (BCV) to cancel online acess to my accounts, and change the terms of my mortgage from 30 years to 5 years. This is actually not as bad as I've seen on other postings, but still has be quite concerned and looking into other options.

Advice anyone?? Thanks!!
