Vizor Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) Solution
Maximise revenue recovery with automatic exchange of information
Our Vizor AEOI software fully automates the collection and exchange of all cross-border information in line with international tax standards. Our platform supports EOIR, CRS, CbCR, ETR, MDR/DAC6, Economic Substance and the IRS FATCA regime.
Across the globe, governments fighting cross-border tax evasion are adopting international standards for Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) like the Common Reporting Standard (CRS), the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), Country-by-Country (CbC) reporting and Exchange on Tax Rulings (ETR) as set out under the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) initiative of the OECD.
In the last decade, the OECD reports that €107 billion in additional tax revenue was identified through offshore tax investigations, voluntary disclosure programmes and related measures.
Automate the collection, validation, cross-border exchange, and analysis of information in line with your international AEOI commitments, using the resources you have, and stay compliant with OECD and IRS requirements. Our turnkey future-proofed software supports all forms of tax transparency including OECD Common Reporting Standard (CRS), Country-by-Country (CbC) reporting and Exchange on Tax Rulings (ETR) as set out under the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) initiative. It also supports Economic Substance, Exchange of information on request (EOIR), ETR, and MDR/DAC6. We are helping our customers keep pace with changes in OECD's AEOI through continuous upgrades.
Our end-to-end software also facilitates exchange requirements under the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) by helping Foreign Financial Institutions (FFIs) to meet their IRS commitments. The software is future-proofed, updating changes in IRS standards over time, ensuring that competent authorities stay compliant with international tax standards and collaborate efficiently with partner jurisdictions. Vizor AEOI solution is used worldwide, including the Bahamas and the British Virgin Islands, where more than a quarter of all global FATCA-registered financial institutions reside.
We selected Vizor (now part of Regnology) AEOI platform due to their expertise not just in the area of IT but also in international taxation obligations as well as their prior experience of working with African government authorities.

Yes, we cover all jurisdictions. Our AEOI solution fully automates the collection and exchange of all cross-border information and is future-proofed for all updates as international tax standards evolve and are enhanced. Our experienced team has a close OECD liaison and continuously provides commentary on upcoming exchange standards. As a global leader in AEOI solutions, we support tax authorities in the global fight against tax evasion and tax avoidance in more than 19 countries, including Nigeria, Oman, The Bahamas, Panama and Gibraltar. Our software helps with compliance, providing high-quality data and analysis allowing tax authorities to make the right decisions.
Yes, you can. While Vizor AEOI solution provides ‘out of the box’ modules which include all required forms, rules, data models and workflows to align with international tax standards we also recognise the need for flexibility. We provide API capabilities to distribute and share information in JSON/XML format with other systems and offers a managed service for the creation, customisation and configuration of new data collections, rules, reports and workflows. Further, our AEOI Analytics solution enables data collections to be pulled via ETL from the database enabling reports to be run on the data for both reporting purposes and the collation of statistics as requested by the OECD etc.
When deciding on whether to buy or build an in-house software solution, you need to consider two main factors - the levels of capital and human investment both initially and into the future. Many organisations underestimate the level of investment and internal expertise required to build a bespoke system that will meet all the current and future exchange of tax information. In practice, developing an in-house software solution has been shown extremely difficult to achieve and maintain. We have built a team of domain specialists, OECD subject matter experts and industry thought leaders over the last 20 years. Our specialist technology and experience enable us to deliver projects within the agreed scope and timeframes. Every customer is assigned a dedicated project team and works closely with us in tailoring the solution to fit their specific needs. With a COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) solution, you will benefit from the experiences of other users of the same product, which helps to ensure a stable and field-tested system. In addition, the product roadmap and future improvements are collaboratively designed with all customers, reducing development and maintenance costs.
