Why we ask where you're a tax resident
According to regulation, we need to know where you're a tax resident so we can let you open a bank account. We do this using your Tax Identification Number (TIN), which tax authorities use to avoid mixing up taxpayers.
A TIN is a unique combination of letters and/or numbers issued to people by the government or tax authority in their country of residence to help when collecting taxes.
In some countries, this may be a number that's specifically referred to as a TIN. Other countries may use different numbers (like a social security number) to identify their residents for tax purposes.
Finding out where you're a tax resident
