In recent years, Governments throughout the world have focussed on protecting the integrity of their tax systems by pursuing undisclosed wealth held in offshore bank accounts. This focus has led to a coordinated effort by the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (the “OECD”) to develop an international system for the automatic exchange of financial data. This system is commonly referred to as the “Common Reporting Standard” (“CRS”).

Over 90 countries have committed to the CRS to date, including Singapore. Whilst some countries have committed to introducing CRS by 1 January 2016, Singapore has agreed to implement CRS with effect from 1 January 2017. The first exchange of information would then take place sometime in 2018.

In conjunction with the increase in tax transparency as a result of CRS, tax authorities are toughening their approach to tackling non-compliance. For example, the UK is planning to introduce a range of new sanctions for offshore non-compliance, as well as introducing tougher terms for its voluntary disclosure facility at the end of 2015

So if your a UK resident and living in the uk and have a offshore bank account that bank is going to report to the UK inland revenue . If you want more information regarding this try these sites http://www.crs.hsbc.com/en or http://www.taxjustice.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/TJN-141124-CRS-AIE-End-of-Banking-Secrecy.pdf

Its still very vague how this effects people who dont live in the UK and have a offshore account they seem to be targeting people or company's who have untaxed money who are UK residents but it all seems to be the start of a global witch hunt for unpaid taxes .

The table below summarises the intended implementation timelines of the new standard.1
