Common Reporting Standard (CRS)

Provides a flexible framework for FATCA and CRS enabling FIs to comply with data consistency while reducing TCO and strengthening auditability


Device Frame

In a worldwide effort to protect the integrity of tax systems and combat tax evasion, the more than 105 signatories to the Common Reporting Standard (CRS) regime require financial institutions (FI) with deposit taking, wealth management, and custody footprints to gather and report information regarding account holders.


  • FIs’ CRS reporting obligations are in addition to their FATCA compliance requirements under Inter-Governmental Agreements (IGA)
  • FIs must perform enhanced customer due diligence and precise customer account classification

  • Because CRS allows nuanced interpretation by jurisdictions, FIs must continually surveil and interpret regulatory changes across multiple jurisdictions

Questions to Consider

  • Do we have enough resources to quickly identify, interpret and incorporate new regulation requirements across our CRS reporting landscape?
  • Have we eliminated our reliance upon spreadsheets and manual processes to collect and handle required data?
  • Do our CRS processes enable us to confidently report on large volumes of data while meeting exacting, jurisdiction-specific requirements?
  • Are we able to accurately validate customer account data from various divisions?

  • Do our current know-your-client (KYC) and know-your-account (KYA) methodologies enable us to classify accounts accurately?
  • Does our data management and reporting approach adequately protect personally identifiable information (PII)?
  • Are we prepared to address regulatory requirements to clean up undocumented accounts?
  • How concerned are we about tax implications of wrong classifications?
