Automatic Exchange Of Information (AEOI)
New standards with regards to taxation have been adopted at the international level since 2016, in particular the automatic exchange of information (AEOI). The AEOI regulates the automatic transmission of information between the Tax administrations of the different participating states to support efforts to prevent tax evasion. Since the entry into force of the Federal Act on the International Automatic Exchange of Information in Tax Matters (AEOIA) on January 1, 2017, Switzerland has been reporting to the partner states with which it has concluded an agreement, a series of data concerning bank accounts held by clients with tax residence in one of these states. To this end, Banque Thaler is required to document the tax status of its clients and to report to the competent Tax administrations, where applicable, certain information on its clients and certain information relating to their financial accounts. The AEOI applies to both natural and legal persons.
