TRACE was co-developed by the OECD, the financial industry and tax administrations with the idea to enable investors to easily and effectively claim the reduced rates that they are entitled without excessive administrative burden. Created to standardize the procedures for providing treaty relief at source, its functionality is very similar to the US Qualified Intermediary (QI) and the Irish QI regimes.

“Having a single platform that supports us in meeting both QI and TRACE reporting requirements will help leverage synergies between both regimes, streamlining processes and minimizing efforts connected to tax reporting,” says Thilo Derenbach, Head of European Custody Product at Clearstream.

The new module for TRACE will be developed on the platform of BearingPoint RegTech’s established and proven tax reporting solution FiTAX.
