This consultation addresses the updating of the Island’s income tax legislation on the making and keeping of accounting records in order to meet international standards.

The power to make regulations to achieve this was contained in the Income Tax Bill 2015 and, during the passage of the Bill through the Branches, it was made clear that the Assessor of Income Tax would consult on any proposed regulations drawn up under the new power. The resulting Act came into operation on 21 July 2015.

Proposed regulations have now been drafted and are contained in this consultation document which also explains why the current legislation needs to be updated and provides a brief summary of the regulations being proposed.

CP16-03 Managing Conflicts of Interest in the Insurance Sales Process (Long-term business) I.O.M.F.S.ACP16-03 Managing Conflicts of Interest in the Insurance Sales Process (Long-term business)

This consultation paper sets out the Authority’s views on developing the Island’s existing regulatory framework to enhance the fair treatment of policyholders by ensuring that any conflicts of interest that arise during the insurance sales process are disclosed and thereby mitigated. The Authority also wants to make sure that future developments will take into account similar requirements and anticipated future developments in jurisdictions in which local insurers operate and compete.

CP16-03 builds on the draft binding guidance issued in CP15-02, the Conduct of Business Code (Long Term Insurers) (“the Code”), to place requirements on Class 1 and 2 authorised insurers in respect of managing conflicts of interest and in particular the disclosure of remuneration payable to intermediaries in the sales process.

This paper includes proposals for additional disclosures to be made in Key Information Documents (“KID”), regarding costs and demonstrating the impact of policy charges.
