The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development‘s Common Reporting Standard (CRS)–a cross-border account holder disclosure regime in force in over 100 countries worldwide, including most of the world’s leading financial centres–requires that entities qualifying as Financial Institutions, including banks, trusts/foundation and investment companies and funds, identify and disclose the account holders and/or beneficial owners of the financial accounts they maintain. This information is automatically exchanged with the tax authorities in the jurisdiction of residence of the account holders and/or beneficial owners. Non-compliance with the regime is subject to severe penalties and enforcement through audits and other requirements is increasing. In many jurisdictions, a written CRS compliance program is mandatory.

    The objective of The General Store DAC6 Guide for Fiduciaries is to steer the User through key sections of DAC6 analysis step-by-step, addressing each of the following themes critical for the DAC6 compliance of fiduciaries:

    • The reasons and means by which the DAC6 regime classifies fiduciaries as DAC6 Intermediaries or excludes them from the definition;
    • The types of cross-border financial transactions and other common fiduciary activities which tend to qualify as Reportable Cross-border Arrangements (RCBAs) and thus necessitate DAC6 reporting and why;
    • The reporting consequences and other compliance duties stemming from classification an as Intermediary party involved in reportable transactions; and
    • The content and mechanisms of DAC6 reporting

    Fulfilling dual purposes, the document provides Users with (i) a blueprint for their anticipated compliance activities in general and (ii) a practical tool for determining the specific consequences deriving from any single Arrangement.
