CRS-Reporting in Northern Cyprus?

Wherever you send your money you will get crucified by the receiving bank should you even able to get money into the north cyprus

It is always the same direct transfers might be problematic.
Indirect transfers work.
Especially in the case of northern cyprus it is easy to hide the origin in northern cyprus.

But i would not want to store there any money because of other reasons. As a pass through bank account it is ok.
 
i use ziraat bank and eurodeniz no problem at all , but you have to go there to open accout in ziraat, eurodeniz open also remotly but sometimes banks refusre send money if t you mention trnc just metion turkey
 
Hey Rey,
I have had no luck with Euro Deniz. My latest attempt to transfer money out of them has now been 4 weeks with multiple emails from myself to get the funds out.
They have replied that they will see why there has been a delay.. that's almost 2 weeks ago.
Sadly .. they have been very poor in actually releasing the money.
For that reason, I would not recommend them

Not necessarily true, North Cyprus is an internationally disputed territory recognised only by Turkey. Globally viewed as an illegally occupied land, it is subject to harsh global trade embargoes. In a bid to survive economically TRNC relies heavily on income generated from casinos, students and ‘nightclubs’, with two of these three attracting many unscrupulous international entities. With regards to bank deposits, yes the government does have some regulations in place to flag money laundering, however there are still some very large loopholes available and the prevailing principle in TRNC is still ‘who you know’.

even if this topic is 2 years old i have something interesting here:
i was last week in north cyprus (NC) and opened up an bank account in a turkish bank isbank. my tax consultant told me open up an account there, nobody, not even isbank turkey, will see anything.
The first thing the lady at isbank NC told me was, that in yeas 2018 i tried to open a bank account at isbank in turkey.

SO THEY OF CORSE TURKISH BANKS DO REPORT TO TURKEY!
I'M still trying to find me a way out...maybe the local bank like "near east bank" will work since they only exist in NC.
