The New Zealand Inland Revenue on 29 March 2017 announced that, in anticipation of the 1 July 2017 start date for application of the common reporting standard (CRS) obligations in New Zealand, it is planning to publish its initial list of jurisdictions that New Zealand will exchange CRS information with—“reportable jurisdictions”—by the end of May 2017.
Additionally, the New Zealand government is seeking public comments on any jurisdictions that should not be included on New Zealand’s list of reportable jurisdictions. Submissions may be made by 14 April 2017.
