 Open ARUBA Bank Account
Aruba is a small (75 sq m) island off Venezuela with a population of approx. 100,000. Aruba is an associated territory of the EU. The Aruban economy is very open and is highly dependent on tourism and offshore financial services. Local taxes are quite high for residents, but there is a well-developed offshore sector which originated in World War Two as a haven for Dutch companies fleeing the German occupation of the Netherlands.

A New Fiscal Framework introduced alongside a new Dutch Tax Treaty (BRK) in response to international pressure as from 1st July 2003 abolished the distinction between offshore and onshore companies, but installed a generous participation exemption scheme which in effect maintains previous tax privileges for non-Aruban business activities.

Foreign exchange transactions
The Central Bank administers the foreign exchange regulations, based on the State Ordinance on foreign exchange transactions. Merchandise import payments may be made freely and exports of goods and services do not require a license. Export proceeds must be generally converted into local currency within 8 working days or credited to an account with a local bank or a foreign bank, which is notified to the Bank.

No license is required for other capital payments made by local entities for an amount equivalent to a maximum of Af 500,000 per calendar year.

A foreign exchange tax of 1.3% is levied on payments made by residents to non-residents, except when settled in Netherlands Antillean guilders
