In July 2014, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) released the full version of the Standard for Automatic Exchange of Financial Account Information in Tax Matters (the Standard), commonly referred to as Common Reporting Standards (CRS), calling on governments to obtain detailed account information from their financial institutions and exchange that information automatically with other jurisdictions on an annual basis. The Standard sets out the scope of financial information to be reported, the financial institutions that need to report, the different types of accounts and taxpayers covered, as well as common due diligence procedures to be followed by financial institutions. The idea is based on the USA Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA).
