In a word, no.
Otherwise every con man in the country would try.
But of course you dont have to take my word for that.
Its often been said here, but worth repeating that banks are not interested in money coming from abroad.
What they want to see is commerce in CLP that they can trace if needs be.
For a start they will ask for six months worth of f.29 monthly tax returns, the Balance Anual and they want to know about all the activos and pasivos you have.
So it is not easy opening a company bank account, it took two years of trading before they would even consider us.
Wonder whatever happened to "The Great Chilean Bank Review"? It was promised around now.
I mean without opening a company account. Just for creating a proof of being employed locally.
We were talking about all the mess with other folks recently and it's really unclear why no small financial company has started a very profitable business on foreigner banking and transfer problem. The central bank's regulation?
