Georgia commits to implement international standard on automatic exchange of financial information by 2023
16/07/2020 - On 8 June 2020, the Honourable Ivane Matchavariani, Minister of Finance of Georgia, committed to implement the international standard on automatic exchange of financial account information by 2023. This powerful new tool will not only generate additional taxable revenues for Georgia by allowing it to identify cases of tax evasion but also drive changes in taxpayer behaviour.
The Honourable Ivane Matchavariani stated "As a member of Global Forum, Georgia stays committed to implementing the global standards on tax transparency and exchange of information for tax purposes and wishes to formally express its commitment to implement the Standard for Automatic Exchange of Financial Information in Tax Matters (the AEOI Standard). Our intention is to begin the first exchanges under the AEOI Standard in September 2023."
The Global Forum welcomes Georgia's commitment as it joins 112 other jurisdictions which have committed to AEOI.
The Global Forum Secretariat will continue to provide technical assistance support for Georgia as it moves to implement AEOI, including within the AEOI pilot project. The pilot project is a partnership between Georgia, Germany and the Global Forum Secretariat, to support the implementation of AEOI in Georgia.
