AEoI Reporting Solution

The distinctive solution to comply with your CRS & FATCA reporting obligations

Context

The laws of 24 July 2015 and 18 December 2015 on FATCA and CRS (“AEoI”) respectively and their subsequent amendments have introduced stringent obligations for the Reporting Financial Institutions in Luxembourg and abroad.

Non compliance with these obligations could result in maximum penalty of EUR 250,000 applicable for each regime and, in case of absence, late, incomplete or erroneous reporting, the Luxembourg tax authorities can add a penalty amounting to 0.5% of the amounts that should have been reported (with a minimum of EUR 1,500).

Your challenges

FATCA and CRS regulatory requirements compel Reporting Financial Institutions (such as banks, insurance, investment funds and private equity vehicles) in Luxembourg and in many jurisdictions abroad to notably:

  • Obtain, assess and monitor the FATCA and CRS status of their clients, investors (“investor due diligence”);
  • Report annually to the relevant tax authorities personal and financial information on the reportable clients and investors;
  • Implement internal controls and keep an audit trail of the performed actions;
  • Present details on the IT systems used for your reporting purposes and a detailed description of internal and external controls implemented.

As the implementation of a reporting system within your company could be time consuming and expensive, especially with regards to the complexity of the technical aspects defining the format of the FATCA and CRS reports, we can assist you during the entire reporting process and provide you with a tailor-made assistance based on your needs and operational constraints.
