IMAS Lunchtime Talk Series: The OECD’s Common Reporting Standard: A Global FATCA:like Regime

On 21 July 2014, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) issued the Standard for Automatic Exchange of Financial Information. The Standard includes the Model Competent Authority Agreement (CAA), the Common Reporting Standard (CRS) and accompanying Commentaries.

The CRS adds to increasing global compliance demands on financial institutions and increases transparency for global customers. More than 90 jurisdictions have committed to the swift implementation of CRS. Of these, over 50 are committed to first exchange in 2017.

This Talk aims to provide an overview of the CRS and discuss the following:

a) Comparison of CRS and US Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA);
b) The impact of CRS on your business and your investors;
c) Key challenges and trends in the region in adopting CRS
