Regulatory framework and developments
The Liechtenstein financial centre stands for access to financial markets and for legal security. Following the implementation of the EU Capital Requirements Directive (CRD IV), the Basel III standards came into force. Liechtenstein has committed itself to the automatic exchange of information (AEOI) 2017. The Principality is also implementing the U.S.-American “Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act” by passing the FATCA Law.
