As part of this process, many account holders (both individuals and entities) will be receiving self-certification forms from the financial institutions they have accounts with. The information that is included in these forms will allow the financial institutions to determine the tax residence and classification of the account holder under the two regimes.
In many cases, these forms are detailed, complicated and confusing, but the account holder is responsible for completing their own forms. The financial institutions cannot provide legal or tax advice. Therefore, if the account holder has questions about how to complete the forms, they will need to contact a tax adviser.
