The Bank is assigned an identification number: (GIIN) – FE0DCW.00000.LE.643. On July 4, 2017, the Bank extended the agreement with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service with the preservation of the previously assigned status of a financial institution and identification number.

FATCA is a U.S. regulatory act that was enacted in 2010 by the U.S. Congress to target non-compliance by U.S. taxpayers using foreign accounts. FATCA generally requires that foreign financial institutions and certain other non-financial foreign entities report on the foreign assets held by their U.S. account holders or be subject to withholding on withholdable payments.


The Common Reporting Standard (CRS) is a standard for the automatic exchange of financial information developed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) for the purposes of combating tax evasion. The Russian Federation has joined the CRS by signing the Multilateral Agreement on the Exchange of Financial Account Information.
