Following the spring budget speech on February 06, 2024, the United Kingdom unveiled a consultation on its plan to implement the Organization for Economic co-operation and Development (OECD) crypto reporting framework.

The website of the United Kingdom government states that “OECD Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) agreements are a key method by which the UK tackles offshore tax evasion. The Crypto Asset Reporting Framework (CARF) and amendments to the Common Reporting Standard (CRS2) is the latest AEOI package that ensures we close gaps in existing transparency rules created by developments in fintech.”

These rules are expected to be implemented in 2026. The feedback window over the framework will be available till May 29, 2024. 

The budget further highlights that “The government is also implementing international standards to close gaps in the tax transparency system that have emerged as a result of recent developments in financial technology and the global crypto-asset market.”
