To enable financial institutions to better understand the operation of the AEOI Portal, the Department is organizing a trial run of the functions provided under the AEOI Portal. Financial institutions are welcome to participate in the trial run. The trial run consists of two phases:
- Phase 1 – Account registration, submission of notifications, and sending and receiving e-messages [already started];
- Phase 2 – Return filing [tentatively scheduled up to the end of 2017].
Before participating in the trial run, a financial institution should:
(a) read carefully the Notes on the Trial Run;
(b) prepare the pre-requisite documents as mentioned in the Notes; and
(c) complete an online form to enrol in the trial run.
Briefing sessions on AEOI Portal Trial Run Arrangements were held in February 2017. The Department will consider organizing more briefing sessions, if necessary.
Any enquiry regarding the trial run arrangements can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
