Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) March 17, 2016
Today, Vizor Ltd. announced that the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis has gone live with the Vizor for FATCA & AEOI solution. St. Kitts and Nevis has an Agreement with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service to comply with the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), a United States Government (USG) tax-reporting initiative.
In addition, with St. Kitts and Nevis’ commitment to implement the new Common Reporting Standard by 2018, it will also exchange information with Tax Authorities in other jurisdictions. The intention is for St. Kitts and Nevis to use the Vizor platform for the Exchange of Information under the new standard.
The Vizor for FATCA & AEOI solution has also been implemented in other jurisdictions, including New Zealand, Cayman Islands, Saudi Arabia, and the British Virgin Islands.
Feature Highlights of the Vizor for FATCA & AEOI solution:
- Financial Institution self-registration and account creation.
- Extensive validation of FATCA and CRS data, including validation against XML schema, validation against account information, GIIN validation, and many additional business rules such as those specified in the “FATCA XML version 1.1 User Guide”.
- Configuration options for running in “fully automated” mode so that little or no manual interaction with the system is required for the Tax Authority.
- Management reports for monitoring, tracking and reviewing information within the system.
- Support for changes to FATCA and CRS data schemas.
- Automated exchange of information with other jurisdictions.
“We are proud to be helping St. Kitts and Nevis promote tax transparency and fight against tax evasion” remarked Conor Crowley, Joint CEO and Co Founder of Vizor Software.
