We’re no ordinary bank. Beyond Bank is a mutual bank, which means we don’t serve share market investors. Profits are passed on as savings for our customers and support for community projects. Join the bank that gives back.

Tax Residency Self-Certification

Recently we contacted select customers in regards to a new legal requirement for banks to confirm if their customers have tax obligations with any foreign countries. This requirement is due to Governments around the world, including Australia, introducing a tax information sharing arrangement.

For customers who have foreign tax responsibilities, based on Common Reporting Standards (CRS) we are required to provide certain information about them to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) each year. The ATO may exchange this information with foreign tax authorities.

For further information regarding CRS, information can be found on the Australian Tax Office’s website. https://www.ato.gov.au/General/International-tax-agreements/In-detail/International-arrangements/Automatic-exchange-of-information---CRS-and-FATCA/?page=1
