Other recent developments concerning the automatic exchange of information (AEOI) regimes, include the publication of updated Irish FATCA FAQs (frequently asked questions) and amended Irish FATCA regulations.

It is expected that an additional statutory instrument would be signed in the coming days, in order to transpose the EU equivalent of the CRS—referred to as the DAC II or DAC 2 (updated directive on administrative cooperation)—into Irish domestic law.
