This will be the first year for CRS reporting. Financial institutions are reminded of the following:

  • Reporting financial institutions with a head office in Taiwan must report all reportable account information, including domestic branches. If the head office of a reporting financial institution is outside Taiwan, each branch in Taiwan must report the information separately.
  • A reporting financial institution can delegate its reporting obligations.
  • All reporting processes are to be completed via a CRS financial institution portal.
  • Financial institutions must report information only for persons who were residents of Japan or Australia in 2019.
  • “Nil returns” are required to be filed.

Reporting financial institutions, or their agents, can upload and report test data before 30 April 2020.
