Automatic exchange of information

International exchange of tax information, how it affects you and your bank

About the team

To combat tax evasion and avoidance, many governments now investigate where their citizens hold overseas assets. The Operational Tax Team supports the bank's compliance of a range of operational tax regulations, such as the US Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and The Common Reporting Standard on Automatic Exchange of Information (CRS).

We also consider the broader response of the bank to these regulations and how we meet our obligations to them.

The Operational Tax Team doesn’t provide tax advice however if you have any doubts on your FATCA or CRS classification we will help you to understand the applicable legislation and guidelines. We recommend you contact a professional and independent tax advisor to discuss your tax classification.

Your personal tax situation

We recommend you contact a professional and independent tax adviser to discuss your personal tax situation, help you understand the international regulations and ensure you comply with them. We can't help you decide your tax status or guide you with filling in forms, as RBS International does not offer tax advice, we can however offer guidance on the terms in the forms.
