Hong Kong will continue to deliver its obligations to implement AEOI in accordance with the Common Reporting Standard (CRS) promulgated by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development,” a government spokesman said.
Multilateral Competent Authority Agreement
Previously, Hong Kong has earlier on activated exchange relationships under AEOI with 49 other jurisdictions on the basis of similar bilateral competent authority agreements or a multilateral competent authority agreement under the Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters.

The Inland Revenue Department of Hong Kong will exchange the relevant information with their counterparts in the reportable jurisdictions concerned on an annual basis.
