Financial institutions in financial offshore centers are preparing to provide jurisdiction-specific tax reporting services to their clients. Initiatives such as the Automatic Exchange of Information (AEoI) and the implementation of OECD’s common reporting standard (CRS) are the main drivers behind increasing client requests for such services from their banks.
The demand for high-quality tax reporting services for clients from an increasing number of different tax jurisdictions is growing in many of the most prominent financial off-shore centers. Tax transparency has become a reality. Sophisticated client tax reporting is about to become an essential service and a factor of differentiation for financial institutions such as banks, asset managers, family offices and Trusts.
