The Department for International Tax Cooperation (DITC) of the Cayman Islands on 22 February 2017 announced that the AEOI portal is closed. It is anticipated the portal will be made available to financial institution users in mid to late March 2017, and for common reporting standard (CRS) return submission functionality around mid to late April 2017.
Additionally, FATCA returns for the reporting year 2016, including returns submitted prior to February 2017, regardless of whether having been successfully submitted and accepted, must also be submitted using the FATCA XML schema v2.0, either manually or through XML upload.
