BSH Money Movement Services for Clients Without a Local Bank Account

BSH Money Movement Services for Clients

Dubai is undoubtedly a land of opportunities for business expansion and emerging entrepreneurs alike. Over the years, it has become a leading city that attracts companies and professionals from all around the world. This status of Dubai is heavily influenced by its steady high ranking in global ease of doing business indices. It also has a lot of impact from the government creating a conducive environment for business operations through significant regulatory reforms and infrastructural enhancements.

However, managing the HR and payroll system in a regulated and well-structured city like this comes with strict compliance and challenges, especially when managing it without a local bank account. These challenges are particularly pronounced for businesses and individuals who operate across borders or have recently relocated to the UAE.

One of the common questions we get asked as one of the pioneer providers of payroll accounting and HR solutions in Dubai is if we have any options to support clients without a local bank account. This article will get into a detailed explanation of challenges faced by clients without a local bank account in Dubai and how we address them, including our money service offering for simplifying this issue.

Challenges Faced by Clients Without a Local Bank Account

1. High Transaction Costs

Engaging in business transactions, that too quite frequently through international bank accounts, can be expensive because of high fees and poor exchange rates. Similarly, frequent currency conversions can create additional expenses, affecting the financial stability and efficiency of businesses operating on a multiple-currency payroll system or across borders.

2. Delayed Transactions

International transactions take some time to process which can bring inefficiencies to business tasks that require due payments. In the context of Dubai, this can also relate to complying with the WPS system that mandates timely payment to employees. Cross-border transactions can sometimes go through compliance checks, which can further delay payments.

3. Access to Financial Services

If you are a business in Dubai without a local bank account, it can become extremely difficult to access banking services, especially loans, credit facilities and other local payment processing. On the other hand, it can, to a great extent, limit a company’s capacity to handle payroll accounting, payroll, supplier payments, and other critical financial operations efficiently.

4. Regulatory Hurdles

One of the main challenges of not having a local bank account in Dubai is navigating the regulatory landscape, especially for foreign businesses. Complying with regulatory changes or those that affect your company’s payroll and other financial transactions can be challenging without the support of a local banking facility.

Through automated fund requests, we can ensure the timely and accurate release of funds to employees and third parties. Similarly, by integrating with client banking systems, our solutions can facilitate the upload and audit of bank files to maintain control and compliance.

2. Secure Disbursement Services

Our cross-border multi-currency payment solutions help our clients to ensure quick and secure international transactions with little downtime and delays, and ensure full compliance with local banking regulations. We also follow a strict and transparent pricing policy, which helps our clients manage their finances or payroll accordingly.

These are standard functions in our payroll services that help our clients, mostly businesses, with their payment or transaction-related challenges when they don’t have a local bank account.
