In particular:

  • Certain financial institutions (banks and others) are obliged to inform the SII the balance or value and payments made to current bank accounts, time deposits, sight deposits and other instruments or financial products.

  • Financial institutions must provide information on the holders of the products/instruments to be reported, as well as information on the controllers of said owners and final beneficiaries who are taxpayers natural or legal persons, assets of affectation or other entities that have domicile or residence in Chile or that have constituted or established in the country.
