Jan. 8 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Justice Department set a deadline of Jan. 23 for 11 Swiss banks to disclose information on all transactions with U.S. customers since 2000, Neue Zuercher Zeitung reported, citing bankers it didn’t identify.

The banks may provide the department with a version of the documents in which customers’ names are blacked out, while giving an uncensored version to the Swiss Financial Market Authority, the Zurich-based newspaper said. The U.S. government would have to prove fraud to get access to the names, according to the paper.
