May 23, 2017 Becca Haile

The Turks and Caicos Islands Exchange of Information Unit has published a set of guidance notes for the implementation of the Common Reporting Standard and related domestic legislation. The guidance addresses a wide range of AEOI topics, including the following:

  • Operation of CRS in Turks and Caicos
  • Treatment of investment manager/adviser financial accounts
  • CRS self-certification of tax residency
  • Determination of CRS status for entity accounts
  • Non-reporting Financial Institutions
  • Retirement and pension funds
  • Excluded Accounts

The guidance also contains some changes to reporting requirements and protocols that were not previously announced by the Exchange of Information Unit:

  • The reporting deadline for tax year 2016 information has been delayed from March 31 to May 31, 2017. However, the deadline will return to March 31 for all subsequent years.
  • The filing of Nil Returns is not mandatory; however, Financial Institutions with no reportable accounts are obligated to complete the notification requirement on the CRS portal.
