Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes

Senegal commits to start automatic exchange of financial account information by 2025

 

04/01/2024 - Senegal has committed to implement the international Standard for Automatic Exchange of Financial Account Information in Tax Matters (AEOI) by September 2025. Hundred twenty-four of the 170 Global Forum members are now committed to start automatic exchanges by a specific date and the vast majority have commenced exchanges. This global reach is a key element to ensure the Standard’s effectiveness in combating tax avoidance and evasion.

“We welcome Senegal’s decision to join the other jurisdictions engaged in the automatic exchange of information, as this will advance the country’s fight against tax evasion and other illicit financial flows and might ultimately benefit its domestic resource mobilisation,” said Gaël Perraud, Chair of the Global Forum.

The Global Forum will monitor Senegal’s progress in delivering its commitment to start exchanging automatically by September 2025 and updates will be provided to the Global Forum members and the G20. The Global Forum Secretariat will assist Senegal in implementing the AEOI Standard and in addressing any challenges that may arise.
