Last Chance To Come Clean … Automatic Exchange of Information Reporting Is Imminent!

Last Chance To Come Clean … Automatic Exchange of Information Reporting Is Imminent!

On May 23, 2017 we posted May 31st Is Deadline For CRS Reporting where we listed the 50 Jurisdictions which will begin to exchange information in 2017.

Now HMRC has reminded financial institutions that the deadline for reporting their clients' accounts under the Automatic Exchange of Information rules falls in less than a week's time.

Returns must be submitted by May 31, 2017, including reportable accounts for the US Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories agreement, and the first year for the OECD's Common Reporting Standards.

Overview

Automatic Exchange of Information agreements are made between the UK and other countries. These agreements allow the exchange of information between tax authorities of different countries about financial accounts and investments to help stop tax evasion.

List of countries who have agreed to share information.

 
Financial institutions, for example, banks, building societies, insurance companies, investment companies, will provide information on non-UK residents with financial accounts and investments in the UK to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).
HMRC will share this information with the relevant countries. Information for financial institutions.
 
HMRC will receive information from other countries about UK residents with financial accounts and investments overseas.
