OECD Forum on Tax Administration Agrees on Common Transmission System for CbC and CRS Information — Orbitax Tax News & Alerts

According to a communiqué issued by the OECD Forum on Tax Administration (FTA) following a recent meeting in Beijing, the heads of 44 tax administrations have designed and agreed to a Common Transmission System (CTS) for the exchange of information. The CTS will enable tax administrations to exchange Country-by-Country (CbC) reports and information collected under the OECD Common Reporting Standard (CRS), as well as other information that may be exchanged between tax jurisdictions. It will provide reliable and secure data transmission for the benefit of all countries, and is to be operational in time for the first CRS data exchanges in September 2017.
