We understand that banking can be very problematic for crew as ‘non-residents’ around the world. Keeping bank accounts steady without bumping into tax problems, card limits, lack of time, large payments, transfer problems, checking balances and other financial implications that might come along while working at sea, is very difficult for crew to keep on top of. Often it is difficult to find help of any kind whether via internet, branch or cash machine.
