By Country Report Separation

Some jurisdictions like the Cayman Islands require separate files to be submitted for each ultimate destination country. 

This saved one client the job of dividing one substantial Fund RFI report into 22 separate XML files. 

Report Combination

Some jurisdictions require that where a business has many Reportable Financial Institution entities either as part of its group or on a managed or sponsored entity basis, that the individual reports are combined into a single XML file.

CRS & FATCA Corrections Service

We have extended our software and service to enable amendments to be made to XML files that were generated by other systems.  Click for more details.
