How does being an 'Accidental American' impact my banking and financial accounts?

If you believe you may have inadvertently become a United States (US) tax resident, commonly referred to as an 'Accidental American', you may be subject to additional reporting requirements and potential taxation by the United States. Financial institutions, including Triodos Bank UK, are required to identify and report account information of US tax residents under the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). Completing the self-certification form accurately helps ensure compliance with these regulations.
