The Common Reporting Standard: An HMRC game changer?

Published on 06 April 2021

With now over 100 countries signed up to the international information exchange known as the Common Reporting Standard (CRS), last year HMRC received 84 million details of bank accounts covering one in 10 UK citizens.

As CRS data is increasingly used by HRMC to identify who should be targeted for investigation and "nudge letters", it is vital that individuals and businesses understand what information is being collected and what HRMC are doing with it.

In this episode Dawn Register, Head of Tax Dispute Resolution at BDO, joins us to explain exactly what the CRS is and discuss its increasing importance for those UK residents with financial accounts and investments overseas.
