Reportable jurisdictions are relevant to the Common Reporting Standard (CRS rules) enacted in New Zealand last year as part of New Zealand’s implementation of the G20/OECD Standard for Automatic Exchange of Financial Account Information in Tax Matters, or AEOI.  Reportable jurisdictions are territories to which Inland Revenue (IRD) will provide certain information on non-residents supplied to the IRD by financial institutions in accordance with the CRS rules.
