Content for CRS/AEoI

Supporting you with critical data elements necessary for compliance with the automatic exchange of information (AEoI) under the Common Reporting Standard (CRS).

As governments worldwide seek to reclaim tax revenues lost to their citizens’ offshore investments, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) agreed in July 2014 to the automatic exchange of information (AEoI) in tax matters. This information will be exchanged between jurisdictions on an annual basis according to OECDs Common Reporting Standard (CRS).

Under the standard, financial institutions are required to identify customers whose tax residence is outside the jurisdiction where the account is held. Positive identification is deemed to include data unique to the “in scope” persons, such as full name, residence address and tax identification number (TIN), as well as the annual total assets and total income of the “in scope” persons accounts. 

Convenient identification of CRS-reportable income

SIX identifies CRS-reportable income by flagging relevant corporate actions as defined in Annex 3 of the Swiss Guidelines issued by the Federal Tax Authority, easing resource-intensive data cleansing and alleviating the annual reporting burden for organizations.
