What is the webinar?

Common Reporting Standards (CRS) is an internationally agreed standard for automatic exchange of information (AEOI) to detect and deter tax evasion by taxpayers using offshore bank accounts.

Majority of countries in Asia Pacific are late adopters of CRS, meaning the countries will perform automatic exchange of financial data only in 2018. These late adopters include Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Samoa and Singapore.

However, residing entities in these countries have to be prepared for the upcoming classification and reporting today to avoid penalties of non-compliance. Join us in our live webinar to learn about:

  • CRS classification and reporting in APAC – who is in scope?
  • What is reportable and what is not reportable?
  • Role of your banks and corporate service providers in the CRS classification, on-boarding and reporting
  • Differences and similarities between FATCA and CRS
  • Consequences of non-compliance

Who will be attending?
CFOs, in-house legal, general counsels, company secretaries, procurement
