Reporting – Automatic Exchange of Information

The Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) is a global standard developed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to facilitate the exchange of financial account information between countries. This exchange aims to combat tax evasion by ensuring that tax authorities have access to relevant information about taxpayers’ financial accounts held abroad.

The Common Reporting Standard (CRS) is an initiative by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), undertaken through the G20 and adopted by over 100 jurisdictions to facilitate the automatic exchange of information and promote cross-border transparency in tax affairs. The CRS is the first initiative that globalises the automatic exchange of information without requests by authorities.

The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is U.S. legislation, and it requires Financial Institutions to collect and report on U.S. owners and U.S. controlling persons of non-U.S. entities. FATCA treats as U.S. owned any foreign entity that has at least one “substantial United States owner”.

In accordance with global standards, Alpha Bank London adheres to the requirements of the Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI), the Common Reporting Standard (CRS), and the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA).
