Bahamas FATCA/CRS Portal Open until January 14

The Bahamas Competent Authority announced the FATCA and Common Reporting Standard (CRS) portal is now open for FATCA and CRS registration and submissions. Additionally, Financial Institutions (FIs) are able to submit corrections to previous filings for non-U.S. tax identification numbers (TINs).

The portal will close on Friday, January 14, 2022 at 5 PM EST. After the portal closes, FIs with FATCA or CRS reporting obligations should contact the Bahamas Competent Authority directly at helpdesk@taxreporting.finance.gov.bs or information@taxreporting.finance.gov.bs.
