Automatic exchange of information (AEOI) – FATCA, CRS, QI and the new enforcement landscape of the evolving tax transparency regimes.

This increased compliance activity requires an increased effort by companies to evaluate and update their compliance activities. In this session you’ll be able to take part of our experiences of how challenges have been addressed on the Nordics market, current global trends and to further take part of in discussions such as:
- Challenges under the FATCA and CRS
- IRS activity under the QI agreement and the Forms 1042/1042-S
- Recent updates on the upcoming DAC frameworks
- The importance of good quality data and how the OECD peer reviews will affect future controls over the data quality and integrity of FATCA and CRS reports’
