If you were wealthy & wanted to evade tax you would have a numbered account. No details of the account holder are stored on a computer, the file is kept in a safe with very limited acess. The bank would not know the account belonged to an English person so this would not get reported.
It's only like that in the comics.
In the real world, all accounts at all banks are listed on their IT systems, and several ppl have access to that information.

Most of who can figure out how to copy that data on to a CD ROM.
