The Panamanian Ministry of Economy and Finance has released additional information regarding its implementation of the Common Reporting Standard (CRS). A late adopter, Panama has committed to commencing exchanges in 2018.

Panama has ratified secondary legislation for the implementation of CRS – the final legislative step in imposing the duty to report on Panamanian financial institutions. Additionally, the Ministry has indicated that it does intend to adopt the “wider approach” to due diligence – which entails collecting account data on all foreign accounts, rather than exclusively the CRS partner jurisdictions, in order to have this data prepared when additional countries commit to the standard.
