OVERSEAS BANK ACCOUNT AND OFFSHORE TAX NUMBER, HOW TO AVOID CRS AND FINANCIAL ACCOUNT INFORMATION EXCHANGE BY HOLDING A SECOND PASSPORT TO OPEN AN ACCOUNT ABROAD
This year, after the outbreak of Wuhan pneumonia (New Crown Pneumonia, international scientific name Coronavirus), more and more people are concerned about the news of offshore asset allocation, how to transfer domestic assets to overseas bank accounts after liquidation, more people associate with the CRS and the automatic exchange of financial account information, how to do it in the end to be safe? Banks are using ID cards and passports to determine? What about residential address? What is Tax Indentification Number (TIN)?
In my previous article: Protecting Overseas Assets with Second Country Passports, for the first time the principle of Dominica pas sports and legal tax avoidance was made public, and many people wanted to do it themselves, but most people still think that buying a passport from Dominica, St. Kitts, or Vanuatu (or the citizenship by investment projects that are still open, such as Montenegro, Moldova, Cyprus, Antigua, Grenada, Turkey, St. Lucia, Malta, etc.) is not a problem. I later wrote a more advanced article: Transferring Assets Overseas, Are You Doing It Right? How to plan? I found that people do not understand what the tax code is? What exactly is the problem with going directly to the bank with your passport?

What are the problems of opening an account with only a second passport?
- Only a passport does not prove that you are a tax resident of the country
- You have not provided a legal address in the country
- You did not provide a tax ID for the country
- The bank will investigate the source of your funds
- Even if the account is successfully opened (probably because you provided your address and ID card in China), this means that the bank account information will be automatically exchanged back to China.
OECD ORGANIZATION FOR ECONOMIC COOPERATION AND DEVELOPMENT
The OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) has published two guides to financial institutions worldwide on (1) how to determine a Chinese person's tax liability and (2) how to find out a Chinese person's tax identification number.

Obligations of tax residents
Pay taxes, pay taxes, pay taxes. Once you fall into the status of a Chinese tax resident, you will become a target of China's global taxation, meaning that your bank account will be useless even if you open it with another nationality. For those who want to transfer their assets overseas, you will expose yourself to three risks.
- You are telling the government that you are a dual citizen.
- Can you submit records of funds leaving the country legally
- Are you confident that you can prove that the funds are tax-paid and legally obtained

Duty to pay tax
COUNTRIES WITH GLOBAL TAXATION LEVY TAXES ON THEIR CITIZENS AS WELL AS TAX RESIDENTS ON INCOME EARNED ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. IN THE CASE OF HAVING TAX CODES FOR BOTH NATIONALITIES, EVEN IF YOU ARE A DUAL CITIZEN LIVING ABROAD, YOU MAY OWE TAXES TO BOTH COUNTRIES, BUT IF THERE ARE INCOME TAX TREATIES BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES/TERRITORIES, THESE TREATIES REDUCE OR ELIMINATE THE TAX LIABILITY OF ONE OF THEM. FOR EXAMPLE, TREATIES BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND NEW ZEALAND TAKE PRECEDENCE OVER THE INCOME TAX LAWS OF EACH COUNTRY TO AVOID DOUBLE TAXATION. EVEN THEN, AGREEMENTS UNDER CRS MAY MAKE YOUR BANK ACCOUNTS TRANSPARENT IN BOTH COUNTRIES, DUAL CITIZENS MAY BE REQUIRED TO FILE TAX RETURNS, AND BECAUSE TAX LAWS ARE COMPLEX AND CHANGE FROM YEAR TO YEAR, ACCIDENTALLY FALLING INTO TAX EVASION MAY BRING A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF PENALTIES.
