The Common Reporting Standard

What is the Common Reporting Standard?

The Common Reporting Standard is an innitiative of OECD (the Cooperation and Economic Development Organisation) regarding an automated information exchange in the fiscal field. 74 countries have so far signed agreements for this information exchange. 

The legal requirements of the CRS aim to provide full transparency for the tax collection procedure and to diminish fraud and international fiscal evasion. 

As of 01.01.2017, all banks in Romania are compelled to collect information on the fiscal residence of their customers via specific forms. 

Thus, Porsche Bank Romania S.A. will request all its customers to fill in the Fiscal Residence Form and attach all needed support documentation. 

All CRS member states will report to the local fiscal authorities and these will send this information to the fiscal authorities in the respective member states.
