Dormant accounts: regulations

printer Mail

The Dormant Bank and Building Society Accounts (Tax) Regulations, SI 2011/22, have been made to ensure that the transfer of a balance in a dormant account to a ‘reclaim fund’ is ‘tax neutral’ and that operation of the unclaimed assets rules does not increase tax compliance burdens on financial institutions. They come into force on 1 February.
