Description

AEOI (FATCA and CRS)

The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is intended to combat US income tax avoidance by creating a new information reporting and withholding regime for payments made to foreign (i.e. non-US) financial institutions (FFIs) and other foreign entities. The Common Reporting Standard (CRS), developed by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), is a global reporting standard for the Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI). The goal of CRS is to allow tax authorities to obtain a clearer understanding of financial assets held abroad by their residents, for tax purposes. While FATCA and CRS have similar characteristics on the surface, there are differences that make universal compliance complex and challenging.
