Preprosto, odprete nerezidenčni račun v tuji banki. Na voljo imate dve varianti: (1) kakšno zelo veliko zahodno banko (denimo Deutsche Bank je glavna v tem poslu) ali (2) banko v kakšni zelo majhni državici, ki se ponaša z vrhunsko liberalnostjo, sploh pa pri kapitalskih transakcijah s tujino. Spodaj je primer, kako se je skozi estonske banke v enem desetletju opralo skoraj 1,000 milijard dolarjev, od tega je Danske Bank, ki jo zdaj vsi preiskujejo, oprala približno četrtino te vsote.
Banks doing business in Estonia, which has been at the center of a money-laundering scandal involving Danske Bank, handled more than $1 trillion in cross-border flows between 2008 and 2017, according to the country’s central bank.
The central bank said that between 2008 and 2017, cross-border transactions totaled 1.1 trillion euros ($1.27 trillion). The number includes all flows, including resident and non-resident transactions, a spokesman said.
Estonia’s entire economic output came to about $25 billion last year – roughly the same as that of Uganda or Nepal – suggesting that much of the money flow was not directly linked to economic activity in the country.
The central bank later said the figure in the Bloomberg report doesn’t relate specifically to non-resident transactions but to all flows in and out of the country, including imports and exports and routine financial transactions such as securities purchases.
Estonia’s imports and exports totaled 232 billion euros between 2008 and 2017, official data showed.
The central bank said in a statement that non-resident flows “only make up one part of the sum,” adding that it does not collect separate data for those transactions.
“This is a surprising figure,” said Copenhagen-based expert on money laundering Jakob Dedenroth Bernhoft. “This indicates that the Danske case is not a one-off affair and that the problem related to other banks as well.”
