    UK Individual Self Cert Form (Tax)

    My UK bank sent me a 'Individual Self Cert Form' a good few months back, along with one for the wife. We have a joint bank account. I filled them out and sent them off.
    Other day I get new forms to fill out. I asked others UK farangs if they got them and the response was 'no'. I just wondered if any other members of TD had received similar forms. The form starts off

    Individual Self Certification Form.

    The various UK regulations for automatic exchange of financial account information impose obligations on UK financial institutions to identify, maintain and report information about tax residence (which includes citizenship in the case of the USA), of individuals and entities for whom they maintain financial accounts. Therefore, please complete and return the information requested. We may be required to share this information about you with the associated tax authorities.
    There appears to be no questions on the form that they don't know the answers to. Would there be a problem if I just binned it or am I legally bound?

    Do you have share trading accounts? As Barclays sent me shit saying had to confirm nationality and country of residence for my trading accounts as otherwise wouldn't be able to trade after whatever date.

    I had one from my U.K. bank. If you don’t complete and return it, they have the right to share your info with other U.K. agencies, like tax, customs and so on.
    I didn’t bother. Like you, I just have a U.K. account for my pensions and to pay U.K. bills etc. All my income is tax paid or tax exempt.
