The Common Reporting Standard (CRS) is the result of the drive by the G20 nations (Group Twenty Leaders and Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors) to develop a global standard for the automatic exchange of financial account information. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), together with the G20 launched the Standards for Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) in respect of Tax Matters.
The AEOI aims to collect Client tax information from Financial Institutions and to implement reciprocal automated exchange of tax and account information between participating jurisdictions. The AEOI imposes on all participating jurisdictions’ Financial Institutions duties of tax identification, classification and reporting of accounts held by reportable clients.
Through the AEOI Self Certification form we request information on the following sections:
- Tax Residency
- AEOI Classification
- Information on Controlling Persons
- Privacy Notice and Confidentiality
