These institutions are obligated to collect, review and report information about their account holders/investors.

All BVI and Cayman Islands entities should identify their classification under the CRS and FATCA regimes.
Over recent years, governments worldwide have agreed to the Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) to enable participating countries to collect information on where their tax residents or citizens have financial assets.
This enables those countries to combat tax evasion and ensure that their citizens or residents pay all taxes they are liable to pay concerning financial assets held overseas.
Both the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands are signatories to the various international agreements required to exchange information automatically under CRS and FATCA and have adopted local legislation and regulations to apply to entities in the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands.
Depending on the results of the classification exercise, entities may be required to:
- implement AEOI due diligence policies and procedures
- maintain records for reporting purposes
- prepare CRS/FATCA board resolutions
- report on an annual basis to the relevant tax authority
For clients that do need assistance with any or all of the above activities, our regulatory and compliance experts are perfectly positioned to provide bespoke compliance solutions.
