FATCA & CRS Initiative
The FATCA/CRS regime was brought into force to detect and bring into undisclosed record assets held by citizens in foreign countries, by imposing reporting obligations on the Financial Institutions (FFIs) of each participating country.
The Need for FATCA/CRS Reporting
Foreign citizens residing in the EU were subject to adverse effects, due to FATCA/CRS, including frozen savings accounts or being denied access to banking services, due to the reluctance of financial institutions to follow costly FATCA/CRS reporting procedures.
In its efforts to improve transparency and combat tax evasion, the OECD and the IRS have reached an agreement to enforce a systematic reporting framework that acknowledges the complications faced by foreign citizens. Recent developments and advancements regarding FATCA/CRS have opened up a new dimension, boosting information exchange between the EU and other countries, and improving transparency globally
When FATCA Reports be filed?
Foreign Financial Institutions (FFIs) are obliged to prepare FATCA/CRS reports in XML format annually.
