The reality of banking services today, against a backdrop of cross-border tax information exchanges, stricter ASC requirements, and pressure from the OECD on business force investors to seek out new and advanced solutions to preserving banking secrecy.

How it works

Who shares clients’ tax information?
Investment funds
Insurance companies

ОFinancial institutions’ obligations in the context of international exchanges
  • Financial institutions take steps to identify the tax residence of anyone being monitored who holds either new or existing personal or corporate accounts.
  • When a client’s residence was obtained via investment, financial institutions exchange information with the country of the account holder’s citizenship, as well as his or her country of tax residence.

How international tax exchanges work
Identify the account owner Financial organizations identify who controls the account.
Identify the holder’s tax residency Foreign tax residents are identified.
Gather account information Financial organizations collect information on foreign tax residents’ accounts for a given reporting period.
Identify the nature of residence Having identified any investment features of the client’s residence, the financial institution sends reports to both the client’s country of tax residence and the country of citizenship.
Information is sent to the country of tax residence Information is gathered based on tax residency, and a report is sent to the appropriate foreign tax authorities in the country where the client is a tax resident.
