The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is an important landmark in U.S. efforts to improve tax compliance involving foreign financial assets and offshore accounts. Similar in its objectives, the Common Reporting Standard (CRS) was developed by the Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development and G20 countries and represents an international consensus on the automatic exchange of financial account information for tax purposes, on a reciprocal basis.
