I'm planning to open a personal bank account in Germany very soon and I need this clarified before I do that.
- I don't have German Citizenship
- I do not live in Germany and I don't plan on living there
- I will not be receiving any money from German Companies (for now at least) and I will not be performing any services or have any sort of activity in Germany besides having a bank account there
- I plan to use the bank account for international transfers only
Do I have to pay any taxes in Germany?
I tried googling for the answer, but I couldn' find a clean answer anywhere. Besides that, are there any other things I should know about before opening a bank account in a foreign country?
