The British offshores decided to transfer to FTS accounts information and assets of Russians

In the middle of January, 2020 it became known that three British offshores — the Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey — will share data on assets of Russians with the Federal Tax Service.

According to RBC, in 2019 the specified islands, as well as all Britain, did not transfer data of the Russian FTS. Department excluded their lists of "the cooperating jurisdictions".

The Federal Tax Service of the Russian Federation explained to the edition that the Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey on the basis of "information which is available for FTS" was excluded from the list.

Existence of islands in the participant list of autoexchange has basic value and for identification of tax offenses, and in terms of currency exchange control, RBC reminds. Since January 1, 2020 for Russians with accounts abroad mitigated requirements for repatriation of a currency earnings — now it is authorized to Russian residents to enlist means from nonresidents directly in foreign banks. At the same time the bank should be in the territory of the member country of autoexchange of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

Though the possibility of autoexchange with the Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey in 2020 remains, existence of Russia in official listings does not guarantee data transmission, the director of business development of Hill Consulting Sergey Nesterenko considers. Man, Guernsey and Jersey as separate admin units of Great Britain are not completely independent and often her politicians follow on the international scene in a waterway, he noted.

It is possible that, despite existence of Russia in lists, afterwards Man, Guernsey and Jersey can refuse to transfer information under the pretext of concerns on insufficient data protection or for other reasons, the partner in the international company taxation of Crowe Ekspertiz Rustam Vakhitov commented on RBC.[1]
