Implementing FATCA (the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) and CRS (Common Reporting Standard) are mandatory for many financial institutions.

Beyond this, companies must disclose their FATCA and CRS status when doing business with financial institutions and are required to determine this status on their own. This process is especially challenging for large corporations and groups located in multiple jurisdictions. An incorrect determination FATCA or CRS status can result in fines and difficulty in obtaining services from banks.
