The OECD took a decisive step toward international tax transparency when it presented the future standard for the Automatic Exchange of Information (AEoI) on 21 July 2014. It is not anymore a question if but when the AEoI will enter into force. All relevant financial centers have confirmed to implement timely the AEoI. The so-called Early Adopter Countries have even committed themselves to implement the AEoI as of 1 January 2016. Switzerland adopts the new regime by 1 January 2017.
