Customer Tax Operations and Reporting Services (CTORS)

Tax authorities are heavily increasing their enforcement activity globally through a range of interventions in tax transparency regimes. We support our clients on tax transparency matters via end-to-end services, focusing on data management, technology transformation, and process review to create sustainable compliance with automatic exchange of information (AEOI) regimes. Our team also supports clients with traditional information reporting and withholding regimes and managed services including US QI, PFIC, Forms 1099/1042, and Form W-8 review.

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

During this webcast, we discussed the challenges of the tax transparency regimes and the increased enforcement activities by tax authorities. The regimes are not always straight forward to comply with due to the complex environment companies operate in and the changing landscape. 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’
