About the consultation

​​​​The Common Reporting Standard (CRS) has been approved by the G20 as the global standard for the automatic exchange of financial account information.

As part of the ongoing commitment to automatic exchange to prevent cross-border tax evasion, we have committed to the early adoption of the CRS.

On 29 October 2014, Jersey joined with the "Early Adopters Group" in signing a multilateral Competent Authority Agreement as a first step in the implementation of the CRS.

We want the views of the industry on a number of issues that could arise from the adoption of the CRS in Jersey.

This reflects a similar consultation issued by HMRC on 31 July 2014.
