On 12 July 2019, the Inland Revenue Department of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis revised the filing deadline for CRS reporting (Link).
The reporting deadline for the Common Reporting Standard (“CRS”) is extended to 29 August 2019, for 2018 CRS reporting. The filing deadline for the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (“FATCA”) remains 29 August 2019, to allow Financial Institutions to meet both reporting obligations at once.
To provide an explanation of the process of enrolling in the St. Christopher (“St. Kitts”) and Nevis FATCA Portal, along with completing a filing on behalf of Financial Institutions, a user training presentation is available (Link). By the end of this tutorial, the user should be able to complete an enrollment, log-in to the St. Kitts and Nevis FATCA Portal, create, select, complete and submit a filing.
