The Common Reporting Standard (CRS), released by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in July 2014, aims to minimize offshore tax evasion and money laundering by foreign citizens and companies. As the early adopters have committed to ensure compliance reporting in September 2017, respective financial institutions need to have all the required systems and processes in place by these dates. Consequently, financial institutions have initiated compliance efforts, and are conducting impact assessment and gap analysis to implement CRS solutions. Deploying such systems requires a high level of customization, creating the need for a partner with extensive domain and technology expertise.
