Common Reporting Standard

The legal basis of the automatic exchange of information in Switzerland came into force on January 1, 2017. Contrary to the already implemented FATCA-regime, the automatic exchange of information concerns a much larger number of clients. The process of implementation affects internal processes of the bank for new accounts, forms and systems applications. A due diligence must be conducted for pre-existing accounts. The first reporting by the financial institutions to the Swiss FTA will take place in June 2018. 


Our long-term experience allows us to respond quickly to the regulatory developments and to provide our clients with tailor-made solutions. 


We will support our clients in the following challenges regarding the implementation of CRS:


  • Project support in the implementation of the Common Reporting Standard
  • Support in the adjustment of the onboarding process 
  • Support in the implementation of the Due Diligence on the pre-existing accounts
  • Development of the CRS compliance Framework (policies, instructions and systems) that is pragmatically designed and customized according to the client’s needs 
  • Ad-hoc support by providing CRS-specific answers


Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
