The newsletter also highlights the following points with regards to preparing the annual information returns:

  • The tax administration has prepared a FATCA and CRS checklists containing useful tips to support financial institutions in preparing the annual information returns.
  • A TIN is mandatory for any new accounts reported on the CRS annual information returns. For pre-existing accounts, the TIN and the account holder’s date of birth must be reported, if it is known by the financial institutions. Financial institutions can verify the TIN through the OECD TIN and EU TIN check portals.
  • A U.S. TIN is mandatory for the FATCA annual information return. The appropriate code for each instance should be entered in the TIN element by adhering to the technical guidance for FATCA reporting for TIN codes not known to the financial institutions.
