CRS and FATCA overview and regulations
The tax information reporting landscape has changed substantially in recent years and is set to become even more complex in the future.
Evolving international tax regulations are challenging organizations around the world to implement new procedures to maintain compliancy. Thomson Reuters ONESOURCE™ offers an integrated solution that combines key requirements for both the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and the Common Reporting Standard (CRS) compliance.
Understanding FATCA and CRS Compliance
FATCA and CRS have similar characteristics on the surface, but underneath there are differences that make universal compliance complex and challenging.
Introduced by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), FATCA prevents US taxpayers who hold financial assets in non-US financial institutions and offshore accounts from avoiding taxation on their income and assets. Foreign financial institutions agree to report on these U.S. account holders or face 30% withholding on all U.S. income.
A global reporting standard for the automatic exchange of information (AEoI) set forth by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). More than 96 countries share information on residents’ assets and incomes in conformation with reporting standards. CRS is more wide reaching than FATCA and requires a unified, cross-team effort to ensure readiness and compliance.
