Welcome to
CRS E-Learning-cum-Consultancy Website
a Complete Solution for
Common Reporting Standard

In 2014, the OECD together with G20 countries and in close cooperation with the EU as well as other stakeholders developed the standard for Automatic Exchange of Financial Account Information in Tax Matters, or the Standard. This was in response to the call of the G20 leaders on international community to facilitate cross-border tax transparency on financial accounts held abroad. The Standard intends to equip tax authorities with an effective tool to tackle offshore tax evasion by providing a greater level of information on their residents’ wealth held abroad. In order to maximize efficiency and minimize costs the standard builds on the automated and standardised solutions that jurisdictions previously developed for the purposes of the intergovernmental operationalisation of the US laws commonly known as FATCA.
