Together with the ICC Academy Singapore, BearingPoint RegTech has developed an online and certified learning program: “Certificate on The Common Reporting Standard: Compliance Training and Strategies”. The training can be booked and started at any time.

The Common Reporting Standard (CRS) is an international standard for the automatic exchange of information on financial accounts. Its goal is to increase the fiscal transparency of cross-border wealth management and combat offshore tax evasion. The CRS was developed by the OECD in 2014, in response to a request of the G20 group of the world’s largest economies. It calls on jurisdictions to obtain information from their financial institutions and automatically exchange that information with other jurisdictions on an annual basis. 109 jurisdictions have exchanged information under the Common Reporting Standard as of 2020.


The purpose of this course is to provide an understanding of the key requirements and intentions of the regime, and how to incorporate them as part of a strategic compliance operating model. This should help industry practitioners navigate common issues when onboarding accounts or reviewing changes in circumstances, and better prepare for the reporting exercises and audits.

We are delighted to partner with ICC Academy to bring our new professional certificate on the Common Reporting Standard (CRS). The CRS is here to stay, and we are committed to helping industry professionals increase their knowledge and competence in this area. We believe that our training will prove useful for financial institutions looking to develop and maintain internal expertise on the CRS, as well as to build a long-term compliance strategy. We recommend a holistic approach that leverages the synergies of multiple tax transparency regimes with their respective client due-diligence requirements.”
