What is the CRS?

  • The Common Reporting Standard (CRS) is an international framework for the automatic exchange of tax information between countries around the world developed by the OECD.
  • All financial institutions report clients' account details to the local tax authority, which then exchange the information with the relevant jurisdictions.
  • There are more than 90 countries that have signed up to CRS, including Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the UK and the Netherlands.
  • Norway implemented CRS on 1 January 2016, and the first batch of reporting was done in 2017.

What is the difference between FATCA and CRS?

Les rendements futurs dépendront, entre autres, de l'évolution du marché, des compétences du gestionnaire du fonds, du profil de risque du fonds et des frais de gestion. Le rendement peut devenir négatif en raison de l'évolution négative des prix. Il existe un risque lié à l'investissement dans des fonds en raison des mouvements du marché, de l'évolution des devises, des niveaux de taux d'intérêt, des conditions économiques, sectorielles et spécifiques aux entreprises. Les fonds sont libellés en NOK. Les rendements peuvent augmenter ou diminuer en raison des fluctuations monétaires.
