The Common Reporting Standard (CRS) of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the European Council Directive EU/2014/107 DAC2 as regards mandatory automatic exchange of information in the field of taxation aim to tackle tax evasion and ensure tax compliance at an international level.
The collection and reporting of data is a regulatory obligation that also applies to Greek financial institutions, pursuant to Council Directive EU/2014/107 DAC2 and Laws 4428/2016 and 4378/2016.
All required data, evidence and information are kept and stored securely by the Bank exclusively for the intended purposes, in compliance with the provisions of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data.
For more information concerning the requirements of the Common Reporting Standard (CRS), you may visit the OECD websites on the Automatic Exchange of Information or the website of the Independent Authority for Public Revenue, or consult your tax adviser.
