15,000 Britons with bank accounts in Belgium will have their details
opened up to HM Revenue and Customs by 1 July according to an announcement made today.
The move is the latest in a series of agreements between fiscal authorities in Europe to trade information on bank accounts held by non-nationals.
Also released today was the news that the Spanish tax authorities are to investigate the UK chief of Santander, Ana Botin, for tax evasion relating to monies held in Swiss bank accounts.
