Do I find the FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) and CRS (Common Reporting Standard) reporting deadlines in the tool?


Yes, users can find the relevant reporting deadlines in the "Reporting Overview" report. Besides the tabular view, there is also a built-in graphical timeline for an even more convenient overview of the applicable FATCA and CRS deadlines.

Is information included about the structure of the local TIN (Taxpayer Identification Number)?


Yes, besides the rules on the collection of TIN, users will also find specific criteria on the structure of the local TIN. This can be very helpful in verifying TIN information of foreign account holders.

Can I find a specific list of reportable jurisdictions applicable under CRS by the local FIs (Financial Institutions)?


Yes, the tool includes country specific reportable jurisdiction lists for the actual reporting year as well as historic data for previous years.

Is it possible for users to create their own tailored reports?


Yes, besides the four predefined reports, there is a so-called "Create Your Own Report" which enables users to choose any of the almost 250 criteria and to create their very own tailored reports. Moreover, users may save such reports for future reference.

Can users submit FATCA and CRS reports to the authorities through the CITT Compare Tool?


This solution focuses on the detailed and up-to-date knowledge around FATCA and CRS reporting requirements around the globe, however, it does not have a reporting function.
