German Banks - Requests for Account Holder Information

Members of the BFG community may have been contacted by their German bank, asking for information about the account holders. Further information or advice should be sought directly from your branch.

The background to the requests for information is that there are international agreements to check whether customers may be subject to taxation in other participating countries. These came into force on 1 January 2016 and on 1 July 2014. Further information is available on the UK Government website: www.gov.uk/guidance/automatic-exchange-of-information-introduction.
