In compliance with the UK’s obligations under the EU Revised Directive on Administrative Cooperation (Council Directive 2014/107/EU) to improve international tax compliance, and the UK’s obligations under Competent Authority Agreements with non-EU jurisdictions for the Common Reporting Standard, HM Treasury is introducing regulations creating due diligence and reporting obligations for UK financial institutions.

The regulations will have effect on and after 1 January 2016 in relation to the DAC and the CRS Competent Authority Agreements, and 21 days from the date these regulations are laid in relation to the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act agreement.
