Cayman Islands Extends 2017 CRS and FATCA Reporting Deadline– May 31, 2018 by Cynthia Pedersen

Cayman Island financial institutions will enjoy an extension on their Common Reporting Standard (CRS) and Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) reporting deadline this year.
The Department for International Cooperation for Cayman Islands released a statement confirming that the Cayman Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) portal will be taken offline at noon on Friday, June 1, 2018 — one day after the May 31 statutory reporting deadline. Pursuant to the Notice, the Cayman Authority intends to reopen the portal from June 15, 2018, through August 31, 2018, to allow Cayman financial institutions additional time to complete their filing obligations.
Any reports filed on or before July 31, 2018, shall be considered timely and should not be subject to late-filing compliance measures.
Read the full Notice.
