More specifically, the credit institutions that operate in Greece, including NBG, are obligated to specify those customers, whether legal entities or natural persons, who are considered as “US Persons” pursuant to the law (namely, they are US citizens or residents), and to report, on an annual basis, specific information regarding their financial accounts, through the Greek Independent Authority for Public Revenue (IAPR), to the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The exchange of information shall take place within the timeframe provided for by the law and pursuant to the relevant guidelines issued by IAPR.
