The Bermuda Ministry of Finance has confirmed reports that Bermuda will be phasing out of CDOT.
The Bermuda Ministry of Finance currently has plans to move to a CRS-only reporting model as it begins to shift from its current CDOT IGA Model 2 status. This means that, from 2018 onward, there will no longer be an option to report directly to the HMRC, and the reporting of UK reportable persons should only be made pursuant to CRS guidelines via the Bermuda Electronic Portal.
