July 2022

WikiIran has identified over 60 bank accounts in 17 different banks in the United Arab Emirates, China and Turkey, which belong to over 30 Iranian front companies outside Iran. They are controlled by one of Iran's largest money exchange houses, the Tahayyori Guarantee Society (شرکت تضامنی تحیری و شرکاء)/ARZ-IRAN (صرافی ارز ایران). Most of these bank accounts are located at banks based in the UAE.

These bank accounts provide both governmental and semi-governmental Iranian entities, such as financial institutions and petrochemical and oil exporters, access to the global financial system which may otherwise be blocked due to international sanctions.

WikiIran is exposing original documents leaked from Tahayyori's servers, the same source as our recent related exposures. Click on and check out some of the information revealed here.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE)

WikiIran exposes here that most of the above-mentioned bank accounts are at banks based in the UAE. Twenty-four Iranian front companies hold 44 accounts at 11 different banks based in the UAE. Most of these bank accounts hold funds in AED, while some accounts hold funds in EUR or USD. All relevant information, such as the names of these banks, the names of the Iranian front companies and their bank accounts, as well as bank statements, are exposed here by WikiIran for the first time. Click on and check out some of these bank accounts.
