The Cayman Islands Tax Information Exchange Authority
(TIA) has announced a further extension of the
soft enforcement of notification and reporting dates under US FATCA
and UK FATCA for 2016.
A Reporting Cayman Islands Financial Institution
(Reporting FI) for which 2015 is the first
reporting period under US FATCA is required to provide a
notification in respect of US FATCA on or before 10 August
2016. If the Reporting FI is also a Reporting FI under UK
FATCA, it will also be required to provide a notification in
respect of UK FATCA on or before 10 August 2016. In practice,
provided that both boxes "UK" and "US" are
checked when completing the AEOI Portal Notification Form, only one
notification is required.
If a Reporting FI submitted a notification in respect of US
FATCA last year, it is required to submit a notification in respect
of UK FATCA this year. Such Reporting FIs should log-in and edit
their original notification to include UK FATCA via the Cayman AEOI
Reports must also be submitted on or before 10 August 2016 via
the Portal. Click here to access the Portal. The Portal
also provides access to the Cayman Islands AEOI Portal User Guide.
The User Guide (version 2), published on 26 May 2016, covers
notification and reporting under US FATCA and UK FATCA.
