Selecting and Completing a Manual CRS Filing

  • Updated

Applies to: AEOI


Warning: Please be aware that there might be small differences between your project implementation and the screenshots and information in this article, however, the overall functionality remains the same.




The manual entry filing is a web form that allows FI users to type in all relevant CRS information for each Reportable account. The Filing is split into three forms which will be shown below.

To Select and Complete a Manual filing, first Click on the Menu Button on the left hand side and go to Manage Filings and Create Filing

Each Financial Institution must decide between a Manually entered filing and a filing completed through XML upload. In this module, we will concentrate on Manual filings.

You must enter a Filing Name and in this example we will select CRS Manual Entry Filing. Then enter a Period End Date and click on Create. 


To Access the filing, click on Draft Filings down the left hand side under the menu button:

All Filings created in the system will be accessible from the Draft Filings menu

 Then click on the Filing Name

After selecting a Filing (in this case a manual CRS filing), a Filer must complete the “General Information” form.

Select Edit to open the form for editing



General Information includes:

  • Receiving Country (mandatory)
  • Sending Company
  • Message Type
  • Message Reference

Note: The Sending Company IN option is only used for Domestic Reporting. It will only appear when the client has domestic reporting.


A green checkmark usually indicates the form is ready for submission.

A red star icon means information must be supplied prior to submission.

Validation rules are run against the data when attempting to submit.

A Financial Institution can create a number of instances of the filing (e.g. Head office with a number of branches etc.).

The user simply clicks on the add instance icon.

Each filing requires completion of the Reporting FI Information. Click on Edit on the right hand side to the right of Reporting FI information. 


Reporting FI Information sections include:

  • Document Type
  • Reference ID
  • Reporting FI Name
  • Identification Number
  • Reporting FI Tax Residence

The Reporting FI information form is where an FI user will enter information about the Reporting FI at which the accounts being reported upon are held.


The Account holder information form is where details of the accounts being reported upon are captured. Depending on whether the account is an individual, certain fields are dynamically enabled or disabled as shown in the two examples below. This form is also where payment information and details regarding controlling persons are captured as required.

Individual Account Holder Information – with payments




Organisation Account Holder Information – with controlling person
