New Cayman Portal Finally Open

The Cayman Islands Department for International Tax Cooperation’s (DITC) new portal is now open. The DITC has also issued its 43-page DITC Portal – User Guide and 46-page new CRS Guidelines Version 4.0 dated November 6, 2020. CRS Guidelines Version 4.0 replaces the previous Version 3.0 issued March 15, 2018.

Deactivation / Deregistration


It is not yet possible to submit a deactivation request via the DITC Portal. The DITC stated the deactivation functionality will be made available in Q1 of 2021.


Account Activation Email


For those that had a User Account in the former AEOI Portal, keep an eye out for account activation emails from the address: donotreply@ditc.ky. Given the large number of accounts, the DITC will send the activation emails in stages.
