What exactly is "Financial Services" in the game context, and how is its value derived?

I've noticed that increasing substantially lately.

Financial Services are fees paid, to wrap up your empire in red tape.

IOW - they're there to prevent people, who are AMAZING managers, from owning the planet. Wanna see it balloon? Get yourself a 10th slave.

[quote]Yes. It's called Financial Services. Not to mention the automatic overriding of your country settings.[/quote]

This is crap... Is it true? That you basically can't make a lot of profit, or they will basically take it away from you?

How do you Quote because I seem to be getting it wrong here?

OMG, guys, get a friggin clue before you dish out crappy advice and deductions.

Financial Services Fee is derived from having too much cash on hand in each particular country. If you have over 20T in cash on hand during monthly processing, you are hit with a "Financial Services" fee.

W3C does not limit your profitability of your countries. It doesn't even limit how much cash it can hold onto. But when you are over 20T you pay a Financial Services fee. You can avoid this fee by either (a) transferring excess cash out to get under 20T, or (b) buying coins using that particular country's cash reserves and getting below 20T in cash reserves in that country, or (c) loaning out excess cash to the loan market. (This option is slow and doesn't always work so well)

Country profitability is solely on the country owner and how he manages his finances. What is coming in needs to outweigh what is going out. The better you manage these two things, the better your profitability will be.

We have fought with the GMs in the past about this fee and it's not changing any time soon.

The Financial Services Fee does not apply to CEOs. You may stockpile as much cash as you like in them without penalty.

It feels like nothing because financial services has been removed from the game.

Haha Chaddick.

Actually I recently let the cash in a few countries build up to over 50T to get a feel of the influence on assets and hence welfare. When I withdrew all the cash down to 5T there was very little, if any, change. So cash assets dont seem to influence welfare much.
Just an observation I thought I would share with you.
