Corporate services in Greater China

Cash management

We have many solutions to help your business, whether you're making payments, or receiving them, or if you simply want full control over your working capital. Our secure online banking service, GlobalOn-Line, is just one example. And our CashPool another, which enables you to link together individual accounts or account structures to utilise intragroup liquidity. 

In Greater China, there are many elements that need to be considered regarding cross-border payments, such as fluctuating exchange rates. In mainland China, cross-border payments are categorised into two types, each subject to different regulations. We have the expertise and knowledge to help you. In mainland China, we are member of China National Advanced Payment System (CNAPS), making local transactions quick and secure. 

In Hong Kong, we are able to offer our customers electronic payroll services, which ensures that staff are paid accurately and on time.  


Our financing solutions can help you improve your short-term finances and cash flow. If you need help to cover a temporary shortage of cash, an overdraft facility may be the answer. Together with your personal account manager at Handelsbanken, you can discuss the financing options for your company.
