Finance Ministry will require all residents, including expats, to register deposits overseas next year

Foreigners staying in Korea for over one year will have to report any bank accounts they hold outside Korea to local authorities beginning next year, according to the Ministry of Strategy and Finance yesterday.

Businesses based overseas that operate in Korea may be required to do the same, the ministry said.

In its 2010 policy guide submitted to President Lee Myung-bak, the ministry said overseas bank accounts would have to be reported for every resident in Korea. The local tax law defines a resident as anyone who lives in Korea for more than one year, regardless of nationality.

Considering Public Financial Resources

This Saturday, we reported: "According to a recent notification from the Council of Ministers, the Royal Government decided to suspend all promotions for government positions in 2010. If a promotion in any position is planned, it has to wait until 2011." That was even more surprising than another report which the Mirror carried on 10.11.2009: "The Government Cuts Salaries of Advisers" - which, in a way, was only the correction of a violation of common sense (and economic justice): Why should only some public servants, employed full time, get a second salary for an additional function as adviser, a task to be adhered to during working hours which are already covered by another salary? But such double, or even multiple payments for some persons, seem to have gone on for years. In many other countries, the Auditor General – being an independent position without special loyalties – might have intervened many years ago.
