Rules governing tax residence
This section provides an overview of the tax residency rules applicable in jurisdictions that are committed to automatically exchanging information under the CRS, as provided to the OECD Secretariat by those jurisdictions. Tax residence is determined under the domestic tax laws of each jurisdiction. There might be situations where a person qualifies as a tax resident under the tax residence rules of more than one jurisdiction, and therefore is a tax resident in more than one jurisdiction. For the purposes of the CRS, Financial Institutions must ensure that Account Holders (or Controlling Persons) disclose all tax residences in the required self-certification. For the purposes of the CRS, the Account Holder (or Controlling Person) must disclose all its tax residences in the required self-certification. Kindly note that the mere right to reside in a given jurisdiction (on permanent or temporary basis) or the fact of holding citizenship of a given jurisdiction does not automatically mean that a person shall be considered a tax resident in such a jurisdiction or that, upon obtaining residency or citizenship, the tax residency is extinguished in the former jurisdiction(s) of tax residence."
The information can be accessed by clicking on the name of the jurisdiction at the end of this page. While the jurisdictions and the OECD Secretariat endeavour to keep the information as accurate and up to date as possible, it is to be considered as preliminary guidance only.

When an asterisk is included after the name of a jurisdiction, it offers citizenship and/or residence by investment (CBI/RBI) schemes that present a high risk of being misused for circumventing CRS reporting. Further information on these schemes and related guidance for Financial Institutions is available.
