CITT Compare Tool in 5 minutes

Three focus areas

In an field where the only constant is change, PwC’s CITT Compare Tool strives to address three areas which clients find the most challenging to manage within their global operations: 

bookVarious Sources of Information

Given the various sources of  primary information from the IRS, U.S. Treasury, OECD and local  regulatory authorities, clients are  looking for a repository of such information in order to centralize their searches. 

PwC’s CITT Compare Tool will  house active links to relevant primary documentation, including  the U.S. regulations, Annexes  maintained by the OECD, EU Directives as well as local regulations and guidance. 

peopleDifferent Users with Varying Needs

Financial institutions are impacted in multiple operational areas by Customer & Investor Tax Transparency initiatives. These units and functions have different needs and require a flexible solution.

PwC’s CITT Compare Tool provides users with standardized overviews and the option to create individualized searches which can be saved to the user’s profile, giving users the freedom to tailor their searches based on the individual needs.

gavelFrequent Regulatory Changes

Frequent regulatory changes have become a constant within the area of Customer & Investor Tax Transparency. Managing these changes from various sources (IRS, OECD, EU and local authorities) has become a challenging and significant task. Based on a 2-step alert process, users will be made aware of regulatory changes in an efficient manner and also be notified when PwC’s CITT Compare Tool is updated to reflect these changes, allowing for new searches to be run and  stakeholders to be notified of impacts to  their institutions. 

How CITT Compare Tool works?

Please find below a short step by step guide on how the tool works.


Select countries

Select a ‘Base Country’, meaning the country against which differences should be compared within PwC’s CITT Compare Tool. By doing so, all reports will be presented in comparison to the selected ‘Base Country’ with differences clearly highlighted. Also, you have the option to choose only a ‘Base Country’ and run country specific reports, without comparison, in a single country view. 


Choose a report

PwC's CITT Compare Tool offers four different pre-determined reports:

  • Executive Report
  • Status Overview
  • Reporting Overview
  • Reportable Jurisdiction Matrix.

In addition to these four pre-determined reports, PwC’s CITT Compare Tool offers one more report to its users: Create Your Own Report, where you are free to not only select a baseline country and countries for comparison, but also any, or all, of the more than 200 criteria covering FATCA and CRS.

Export your report

Export your report to a time-stamped PDF for documenting or sharing with your teams.


Save your search

You also have the option to save your searches within your profile and rerun the reports when regulatory updates occur. Importantly, when you rerun the search it will include the most recent regulatory information. 

How am I informed about changing regulations in all those countries?

PwC provides regulatory alerts to the users of the CITT Compare Tool in a two-step process: first, you will be notified of any regulatory changes in any jurisdiction, i.e. the passage of local legislation, via a weekly e-mail and the CITT News Blog (which feeds into PwC’s CITT Compare Tool). Secondly, you will be notified again once PwC’s CITT Compare Tool is updated to reflect the changes.
