SuisseTax Online Portal Open for AEOI Registration

As of this week, ESTV SuisseTax, the Swiss Federal Tax Administration’s online portal, has opened its AEOI registration function for reporting Swiss Financial Institutions (“FIs”). Reporting Swiss FIs must register by the end of 2017 for an initial AEOI data exchange in 2018.

Please note that a registration for AEOI purposes is only possible via the online portal. Swiss FIs can enter the ESTV SuisseTax portal by referring to the following link:  https://www.estv.admin.ch/estv/de/home/estv-suissetax/estv-suissetax.html.

The Swiss Federal Tax Administration is expecting to provide a data exchange test phase for reporting Swiss FIs in the summer of 2017.
