Switch the digipass on by pressing “OK”
Please note, if your choice of digipass PIN isn’t considered secure enough the message “Weak PIN” will be displayed on the digipass. If this happens press “OK” and you will be prompted to enter a different, more secure, PIN.

To login, continue to the Triodos homepage.
Turn the digipass over and input the digipass number from the back into the ‘digipass number’ - do not include hyphens - and then press NEXT.
There is an option to tick the ‘remember my number on this computer’ checkbox so you don’t have to input this every time.

In 2010, the United States (US) Treasury announced the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). It is intended to prevent tax evasion by US citizens, residents and organisations through the use of offshore accounts and is a key change for international information exchange policy. Under FATCA, Financial Institutions must comply with a number of obligations, including reporting on accounts held by US persons, including organisations.
A number of governments, including the UK, have signed agreements to exchange data with the US. Triodos Bank must check customer records and accounts to identify US account holders and report information on them. To do this we introduced new procedures from 1 July 2014.
For more information please visit www.irs.gov or speak to your tax advisor.
