Echange automatique avec les territoires britanniques
In line with provisions in Council Directive 200-34-8EC (the Savings Directive) certain dependent territories of EU Member States have also agreed to adopt the same measures as are contained in the Savings Directive. These commitments are being given effect by separate bilateral agreements with the Member States.
In a statement, the HM Treasury said that Anguilla, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, Montserrat and the Turks and Caicos Islands have agreed to much greater levels of transparency of bank accounts held in those jurisdictions, following on from a similar agreement signed by the Cayman Islands.
They have agreed to automatically share information bilaterally with the UK and multilaterally within the G5, made up of Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. Under this agreement, much greater levels of information about bank accounts will be exchanged on a multilateral basis as part of a move towards a new global standard.
