CRS-Reporting in Northern Cyprus?


Blue elephant

New member
Would like to open a private account in Northern Cyprus TRNC. Have read that the Turkish part of Cyprus does not participate in CRS reporting. Is this true? Anybody got a bank recommendation? Thanks


New member
They can’t participate in CRS as i know.
I would try Turkish banks instead of banks in Northern Cyprus TRNC.

How do you think they will enforce CRS in Turkey? Like any European country does or are they less strict?

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.

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

thanks can you give me your accont nr ? i start get worried as well . i suggest you try ziraat bank in nicosia they are very good , i did have 1 issue with eurodeniz but problem was with corresspondent bank, we send funds to payserera but money was lost 2 mounths , was not muck but was annoyig

i have account in ziraat at least 4 years, but now onshore banks is not easy to open, and you cannot travel to cyprus is the biggest problem, offshore banks still open accouts , the best is allied turkish bank ibu , but not easy to open with them only investemnet actiitievies

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’.
