All About The Jurisdiction Of Austria

A federal republic that is located in Central Europe, the Republic of Austria (official title) or just Austria, is bordered by countries such as Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Italy and Germany. The country’s official currency is the Euro (they are a European Union member state) and the language spoken by its citizens is classified as Austrian German. Today there are over 8 million people living in Austria.

Austria has a highly developed economy which has seen yearly growth since it was impacted by the financial crisis of 2008/09. The GDP per capita is good at $44,777 and in the list of the world’s richest countries it is at position 12. The economy of the country is dominated by the service sector and this provides work for 67% of the working population.

Banks in Austria are subject to stringent regulation and they have to be compliant with the numerous provisions of the Banking Act of 1994. The Banking Act is updated often to ensure that it aligns with any changes in international banking regulations and also the monetary policy changes that are made by the European Central Bank. Financial institutions and banks are closely regulated by the Financial Markets Authority in Austria and the central bank is responsible for overseeing the implementation of policy decisions made by the European Central Bank.

The country has a very good reputation across the world for its private banking services. A conservative approach to asset management will be adopted by all Austrian banks, and their aim will always be to make certain that the growth of your assets exceeds current inflation rates.

Austria is a strong country both politically and socially and the economy there is strong and highly developed. The banks are under very tight regulation and have to fully comply with very strict laws so all of this means that Austria is a first class choice of jurisdiction for asset protection, enhancement and diversification.

As an EU member state, your corporate account in Austria will be entitled to protection from the EU Deposit Guarantee Scheme. It is a scheme that is intended to provide protection for bank accounts in the EU. With all of the monitoring and regulations in Austria, the likelihood of a bank defaulting and not being able to pay out is pretty small. So if this was to occur, the Deposit Guarantee Scheme would provide cover for up to 100,000 EUR for your account.  If you would like more information about the scheme please ask your Offshore Pro Group consultant.
