Please refer to the following AEOI technology tool slip sheets to learn more about how KPMG’s tax reporting services and technology enabled solutions can help your business navigate the key challenges of AEOI.
Why use KPMG AEOI Reporting?
Reporting information on Financial Accounts to local tax authorities under Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) requirements can be challenging without a reliable technology solution. Countries impose different reporting deadlines, require different file formats or data points, demand different submission methods and often do not operate test facilities. KPMG AEOI Reporting is a solution designed to convert system data into the relevant reporting schema in all of the jurisdictions you operate. KPMG firms can offer two solutions to help clients.
- A managed service whereby clients provide data to KPMG for processing and submission. Data is only ever processed in the UK or the country where the Financial Institution is located.
- A software solution which can be deployed behind your firewall. This is a sophisticated yet simple to implement solution which is designed to ensure you never need to send your data outside of your organization for processing. KPMG AEOI Reporting is simple to use. The technology:
- Provides a reporting solution to convert data from core systems into the correct reporting formats. The solution enables financial institutions to file reports in the correct formats across multiple jurisdictions.
- Is easy, quick and cost effective to deploy into your organization, designed to protect the sensitive customer information you will be reporting.
- Acts as a data validation engine to identify errors and missing customer data which could otherwise delay or prevent the submission of reports. Our broad-ranging, proprietary data validation engine runs hundreds of checks on your data before submission.
- Offers centralized oversight on a customized dashboard to track reporting progress across organizations with multiple Financial Institutions in different jurisdictions.
- Submit FATCA returns in Model 2 or Non-IGA jurisdictions directly into IDES, using automation within the tool.
Features of KPMG AEOI Reporting:
The tool is designed to simplify the reporting process as it:
- Creates and embeds the XML files required for submission ‘behind the scenes’, removing the need for users to understand XML or the schemas.
- Ensures real time updates to schemas and templates are made automatically without action required by clients.
- Runs hundreds of data validations in real-time. This comprises both XML schema level and Competent Authority specific checks.
- Logs data changes to Financial Institutions and customer data for audit/control purposes and produces a ‘human readable’ report of the XML data as record of the submitted information.
KPMG AEOI data health check:
KPMG firms can offer clients the ability to run data through the proprietary rules engine on a regular basis without creating a submission file. This approach allows companies to proactively resolve data issues prior to a submission deadline and create a data lifecycle management process enabling data issues to be resolved throughout the year. Proactively completing data health checks prevents data integrity issues being stored up and only being resolved at year end. Using the data health check module can speed up the final report generation process.
KPMG AEOI regression testing module:
KPMG firms can help clients who have developed their own in-house reporting solution validate the output to help ensure it meets the tax authority requirements. Our software can allow clients to run their XML extract files against the KPMG proprietary rule-set to highlight any areas of non-compliance. This tool can significantly reduce the amount of time business and systems analysts within a firm need to spend to ensure their internally developed reporting solution remains ‘compliant’ and up to date.
