What is a Euro bank account?

Offshore euro bank accounts allow customers to hold funds in euros and offshore, which may be beneficial to those living and working abroad, expats or individuals who have property abroad. A euro account enables the holder to be paid in, and carry out transactions, primarily in euros, which can save them both time and money.
