“This particular training is on the CRS and AML which is the Common Reporting Standards and the Anti Money Laundering.  So the Common Reporting Standard is a standard that was developed by the OECD which is the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development and they developed that in 2014 and it’s basically a platform for tax authorities to exchange information and so we felt it important for us to bring in a tax expert and so we brought in Jose Romero from Panama to basically educate our members on CRS.”
