FATCA & CRS Update Q3 2018

The Department for International Tax Cooperation has advised that the AEOI Portal is currently online and open for notifications and reporting for all years.

Users have been advised to submit any outstanding reporting as soon as possible. Cayman Financial Institutions (CFIs) with CRS reporting obligations are reminded that these obligations will not be regarded as complete, even if they have no reportable accounts, until they have successfully submitted a CRS Filing Declaration for the relevant reporting period.
