Topic: FastSpring and the strange requirement of currency control

All greetings! It is a little input. At present our company works with FastSpring some years. All this time we successfully transit currency control of bank on all transfers from . We gave in bank User Agreement (i.e. the offer in their site), signed by representative FastSpringa where are specified our title, the address, banking currency accessories, and the signature of the general director, and from that side - the full title, the address and the signature of representative . Also transfer of the contract into Russian - the bank requirement is made and assured. Plus we give invoices on each transfer. All works, claims are not present, in 2017 we transited  check from tax was specific this contract - violations from them did not arrive. Not so long ago we decided to update the contract in connection with little changes in our company. We took fresh version User Agreement from personal offices, added there contract periods of validity, the full accessories of our organization - a title, the address and bank details, plus the signature of the general director. From FastSpringa there the full title (Brightmarket LLC d.b.a. FastSpring), the address and a name of the responsible person which will append the personal signature. Brought in bank a preliminary draft copy of the contract to receive the preliminary consent - whether all corresponds to present laws and other banking input, whether it is possible to ask to sign it manager ? On it received the answer - in addition to that is, bank details of the second side of the contract, i.e. FastSpring are necessary to us. Thus refer to a certain letter-instruction of the Ministry of Finance from 2003. We request , give accessories, the bank demands. To us answer - we cannot give you accessories of the American legal person, it is the restricted information. Payment to clients wire bank transfer at them becomes on their legal person in the Netherlands. If it is required to return money owing to the sudden reasons - them return standard means of system SWIFT. So - we give nothing, many clients from Russia have the same contract as at you, and questions were not, have a nice day. We again in bank - at us are not present and there can not be their accessories how to be? On what we receive the answer that in case of check from tax to us there can be questions. So _ _ that accessories were. We it - but we transited  check of the current contract where there are no bank details of FastSpringa, and claims to us from tax specialists were not. And you under this contract accept money which year - and a word against do not tell. They speak - well, , and another time questions at tax can and arise, after all the norm such is, nobody cancelled it. That is the contract operates, all arranges, but under the law it like as though and not quite  according to bank. Here there are we on asphalt in skis put and think - what to do now? Make the new contract with accessories we cannot - at us only bank details without the account. To leave all as is - we can theoretically be stuck on violations of the currency legislation, and it potentially to give to the state a gain under this contract for 2 years at a rate of 100 %. For understanding of scale of risk - a turn to this contract for last year - X00 USD. The interesting moment that FS from this year a beret from clients from Russia of 18 % also sends it to the Russian tax. I.e. they somehow interact, FS submits "to the tax to Google" and pays it. The question to dear community - somebody faced the similar requirement of bank - to inscribe bank details FastSpring in the contract which is given in currency control? Type variants "inscribe something and relax" are not rejected, but the company big already and risks are great. Forgive that we write anonymously. How generally it is possible to receive ferro-concrete acknowledgement of what with the contract all is good? Thanks.

Perhaps, if is possibility not on behalf of the company (casually not to tease, so to say) to send the missive in tax with the request to explain?
