What are offshore euro savings accounts? 

A euro savings account is simply an account that lets you pay in and earn interest in euros. These currency accounts are available from some UK banks and building societies, but are also available from offshore banks too.

Who might open an offshore euro savings account? 

  • EU nationals living and working in the UK or abroad
  • Those who own properties in Europe
  • Those working in the EU states and being paid in euros

The distinct advantage of having a savings account denominated in euros is that if it’s the currency your income is in; you don’t have to face foreign conversion charges, not to mention losing out if the exchange rate isn’t favourable.
