HMRC and the handling of CRS Data

Course Summary

The introduction of the Common Reporting Standard (CRS) means that by the end of 2018 HMRC will be receiving more data on financial assets from offshore jurisdictions. This half-day course provides an awareness of how HMRC uses and interrogates data provided under the Common Reporting Standard (CRS) and its implications for tax payers.


  • Background to CRS – why HMRC wanted it, the mischief it is tackling, data sources, the encouragements and potential future sanctions
  • What HMRC does with the CRS data it collects – the practical side of receiving and matching information
  • The legal aspects of providing data – challenges and reputational impact
  • Cases – including CIP, MN and the demonstration of CONNECT by HMRC
  • Practical aspects – what if data is wrong, who to talk to at HMRC if a formal disclosure is not appropriate, and changing legislation
