The FATCA & CRS General Store is your one-stop shop for the materials needed to fulfill past, on-going and future FATCA and CRS compliance needs.

The General Store features documents that are mandatory for these regimes, such as CRS Compliance Programs for fiduciaries in The Bahamas, Bermuda, BVI, the Cayman Islands and Switzerland, as well as FATCA Compliance Programs and written sponsorship agreements for fiduciaries completing their FATCA Responsible Officers (RO) Certifications.

We also offer an array of operational and educational products, including a CRS & FATCA Reporting Information Repository, a year-long subscription to Peter Cotorceanu’s peerless blog and videos from our intensive RO Certification Bootcamps.
