The final measures in the Bill are identical to the draft provisions proposed by the Luxembourg government.

As a reminder, the objective of the Bill is to bring Luxembourg law in line with the latest review by the Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes (tasked with monitoring and evaluating the implementation of the CRS). The Bill has already helped inform the reporting and due diligence obligations of Reporting Financial Institutions in Luxembourg and the prerogatives of the Luxembourg tax authorities with a view to increasing legal certainty, and will ultimately align FATCA and CRS rules to form a cohesive approach.

The main provisions of the Bill will be applicable as from 1 January 2021.
