TRSUIT-42: SEI FATCA Information Delivery v1.3 (Improvement)

The "Technical Specification and User Guide for Financial Institutions according to FATCA IGA 2" [hereafter: «User Guide»] has been updated and addresses new requirements from the IRS concerning the content of the FATCA-XML file (CARRef-Element in accordance with the FATCA XML scheme V2.0, cf. chapter 4.5.3 of the user guide). The general rule is that financial institutions concerned have to take into account the requirements of the IRS for the FATCA-XML that are valid at the time the file is delivered to the FTA.

TRSuite Version 20.05 implements all changes as described in version 1.3 of the User Guide. Further the software validates the reports against all important business and validation rules for SEI XML and FATCA XML as described in Business & Validation Rules FTA (PDF, 197 kB, 19.05.2020)

 

TRSUIT-57: SEI FATCA: NPE in case of 0.0.1900 birth date format (Bug)

In case the invalid birth date 0.0.1900 was entered into the excel template the import failed with a "Null Pointer Exception". This error condition is now handled correctly and the user is informed about the incorrect data.

 

TRSUIT-58 CRS: Adress element getting duplicated during export (Bug)

In case an address element was a combination of a free and fix address element the data was duplicated during the XML export. If only free or fix address element was used the data was exported without any issue.

Export of address data is now correct and no duplicate data element is produced.

 

TRSUIT-62: SEI FATCA: Support for Cover Letter (New Feature)

Since version 20.05 it is possible to add a cover letter to the generated delivery package. Simply select or enter the path to the relevant file and it will added automatically. If the delivery file is split due to size or account number restrictions the cover letter is added to each generated delivery file.

 

TRSUIT-61: SEI Reporting Pool Report Data Extractor (New Feature)

In case the FTA request further information about pool report data regarding threshold, the FI needs to send a excel file with specific data as described below.

To support financial institutes generating such a report we implemented a little tool (pool extractor) to extract the relevant information from pre-existing pool reports. As not all data is available in the pool report, there is still a major manual task to complete the data. The data is missing, because within the pool report there is no data available regarding above/below threshold data.


The flow looks like:

1.    Collect all your relevant pool report in one folder (Reports Root Folder)


2.    The tool collects all XML files within the defined folder, extracts the data and generates a enclosure.xlsx file (or as named by the user) in the root folder.
3.    Manually complete the data

 

TRSUIT-64: SEI Reporting Pool Report Data Extractor fails for FATCA XML 1.0/1.1 (Bug)

The extraction process failed for reports generated in year 2014/2015 in the old FATCA XML 1.0 or 1.2 format. Since version 20.05.01 also the extraction of the old formats is supported.

 

TRSUIT-63: IDES: IRS Response extraction fails with no error

The validation of the working directory failed during the extraction process of an IRS response. The process aborted without further notification. This is fixed for version 20.05.01.

 

TRSuite Release Notes Version 20.03

Welcome to the release notes for TRSuite version 20.03. Read these release notes thoroughly before you install the latest update, as they contain information the User Guide documentation may not cover. Release 20.03. and later requires a valid support license valid after 1st of March 2020.

Bug: HK Module: Excel Import: empty Controlling Person generates error during import (TRSUIT-51)

If the Excel-Datasource contains any empty Controlling Person for an organisation the import process reports errors (can be ignored). Since version 20.03 the import runs without errors.

 

Improvement: IDES Module: Validation, if working directory is accessible (TRSUIT-14), improved error message (TRSUIT-27)

Additional check for IDES configuration validation and processing: if working directory is not accessible / writeable a proper error message is shown. In previous versions the processing stopped with a cryptic error message.

 

Improvement: IDES Module: Save HCTA processing option

In case the user enables the "Encrypt AES key with public key of HCTA" stepp during the transmission archive creation, the step remains enabled next time the application is started.

 

Bug: SEI Module / FATCA: FilerCategory and AccountClosed should not be used for 2014/15

If FATCA reports are generated for reporting year 2014 / 2015 the both elements FilerCategory and AccountClosed should not be included for tax years 2014 and 2015, but is required for 2016 and later years (source: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p5124.pdf).

 If the Reporting Period is 2014 or 2015 TRSuite does not generate the two elements within the FATCA XML report.

 

Bug: SEI Module: SEI File size splitting, last delivery package not written

If the last package exceeds the max file size and requires splitting the last delivery package is not properly created. Fixed since 20.03.0.0

 

Improvement: FATCA Reporting for SG: Adapt changes for SG Reporting

With effect from 1 April 2020, Reporting SGFIs must submit all FATCA returns, including nil returns (if applicable), electronically to IRAS via the “Submit CRS or FATCA Return” e-Service at IRAS’ myTax Portal. The Supplementary Guide provides additional guidance on how the information for certain data elements must be presented for the purpose of FATCA reporting to IRAS via myTax Portal with effect from 1 April 2020. (source: SG new supplementary XML guide).

Since version 20.03.0.0 TRsuite supports the described requirements. Once the transmitting country is set to SG, the specific ruleset for SG reporting is active. Automatically the receiving country is set to SG and the message reference ID is generated according the new guide.

CRS/FATCA: PDF Documentation naming convention (TRSUIT-7)

With release 20.01 it is now possible to anonymize customer names in file names. Instead of the name a hash value is calculated.

 

Naming schema: <Account_Number>_<Name>.pdf

TRSuite Release Notes Version 20.02

Welcome to the release notes for TRSuite version 20.02. Read these release notes thoroughly before you install the latest update, as they contain information the User Guide documentation may not cover. Release 20.02. and later requires a valid support license valid after 1st of February 2020.

IDES: Connection Test for IDES gatewy (TRSUIT-22) & Error message in case of bad authentication (TRSUIT-21)

The IDES module comes with a connection test to the configured SFTP-Server. It tries to connect the configured SFTP-Server using the provided username and password. 

The result of the connection test is displayed in the details area on the righthand side. E.g. the following error pops up in case the credentials are wrong or the password is expired:

 

Bug: SEI: Password Delivery Information PDF not getting generated (TRSUIT-30)

During packaging the application (generating the installer) the binary PDF template was damaged. Delivery packages were generated, but no password delivery PDF-file. Introduced with version 20.01.0, fixed since 20.01.1 / 20.02.0

 

Bug: SEI: FATCA reporting FI name split for SEI address if > 35 chars (TRSUIT-29)

If the name of the reporting FI has > 35 characters, an invalid SEI-XML address line was generated and the generated XML failed schema validation. Now a line break is added and the name is distributed over two lines.

 

Bug: SEI File size splitting / MB calculation (TRSUIT-32)

Since version 20.02 the decimal (10002 byte = 1 MB) multiplier is used instead of the binary (10242 = 1MiB) to calculate the file size in MB. Further the packaging logic was changed to ensure no extracted package exceeds the maximum file size (250 MB). Still it can happen, that the compressed file exceeds the soft maximum of 200 MB in case the delivery package contains a lot of large PDF files.

 

SEI: Import Default Values without column used (TRSUIT-23)

A new usage type (def) allows to defined default values in the data dictionary. During the import of an excel template the default data is used, even if the field is not used in the template at all. E.g. define a default currency for all account reports:

The column AC07 can be removed to allow simpler templates without columns all holding the same value.

 

XML Validation detailed error report (TRSUIT-31)

XML schema validation errors are now displayed in a structured way. This allows to easier identify the issue within the XML file.

Raw message format:

 

SEI: Validation (TRSUIT-34) / Warning, if fields exceed max spec length (TRSUIT-28)

Introducing the possiblilty to validate a complete report:

or a single information package using the context menu:

 

Text length is now checked in real-time during entering a text. If the length is above the maximum allowed the field background turns red:

 

SEI: Set SeiDeceased only for organisations (TRSUIT-37)

In case of person type organisation all defined default values were set during an excel import, even if the field is defined for INDIVIDUALS only, e.g. birth date, deceased. Since 20.02.01 only the relevant elements are set.

 

SEI: NPE in case of invalid birth date format (TRSUIT-38)

An invalid date format in an excel template causes a Null-Pointer-Exception during the data import, if the cell is formatted as "text". Since 20.02.0.2 the error condition is properly handled.

The excel field needs to be formatted as "Date" or, if formatted as text the format must be YYYY-MM-DD.

 

IDES: Temp directory not getting generated (TRSUIT-39)

Generating a IDES transmission archive in a new working directory fails, because the temp folder can not be generated by the application. This is fixed in version 20.02.0.3.

Manual Workaround: create the folder manually in your environment, e.g. if C:\FATCA2019 is your working directory, generate C:\FATCA2019\temp

 

 

 

 

 

Setup Command Line Parameters

The Setup program accepts optional command line parameters. These can be useful to system administrators, and to other programs calling the Setup program.

/HELP, /?

Shows a summary of this information. Ignored if the UseSetupLdr [Setup] section directive was set to no.

/SP-

Disables the This will install... Do you wish to continue? prompt at the beginning of Setup. Of course, this will have no effect if the DisableStartupPrompt [Setup] section directive was set to yes.

/SILENT, /VERYSILENT

Instructs Setup to be silent or very silent. When Setup is silent the wizard and the background window are not displayed but the installation progress window is. When a setup is very silent this installation progress window is not displayed. Everything else is normal so for example error messages during installation are displayed and the startup prompt is (if you haven't disabled it with DisableStartupPrompt or the '/SP-' command line option explained above).

If a restart is necessary and the '/NORESTART' command isn't used (see below) and Setup is silent, it will display a Reboot now? message box. If it's very silent it will reboot without asking.

/SUPPRESSMSGBOXES

Instructs Setup to suppress message boxes. Only has an effect when combined with '/SILENT' or '/VERYSILENT'.

The default response in situations where there's a choice is:

  • Yes in a 'Keep newer file?' situation.
  • No in a 'File exists, confirm overwrite.' situation.
  • Abort in Abort/Retry situations.
  • Cancel in Retry/Cancel situations.
  • Yes (=continue) in a DiskSpaceWarning/DirExists/DirDoesntExist/NoUninstallWarning/ExitSetupMessage/ConfirmUninstall situation.
  • Yes (=restart) in a FinishedRestartMessage/UninstalledAndNeedsRestart situation.
  • The recommended choice in a PrivilegesRequiredOverridesAllowed=dialog situation.

5 message boxes are not suppressible:

  • The About Setup message box.
  • The Exit Setup? message box.
  • The FileNotInDir2 message box displayed when Setup requires a new disk to be inserted and the disk was not found.
  • Any (error) message box displayed before Setup (or Uninstall) could read the command line parameters.
  • Any task dialog or message box displayed by [Code] support functions TaskDialogMsgBox and MsgBox.
/ALLUSERS

Instructs Setup to install in administrative install mode. Only has an effect when the [Setup] section directive PrivilegesRequiredOverridesAllowed allows the commandline override.

/CURRENTUSER

Instructs Setup to install in non administrative install mode. Only has an effect when the [Setup] section directive PrivilegesRequiredOverridesAllowed allows the commandline override.

/LOG

Causes Setup to create a log file in the user's TEMP directory detailing file installation and [Run] actions taken during the installation process. This can be a helpful debugging aid. For example, if you suspect a file isn't being replaced when you believe it should be (or vice versa), the log file will tell you if the file was really skipped, and why.

The log file is created with a unique name based on the current date. (It will not overwrite or append to existing files.)

The information contained in the log file is technical in nature and therefore not intended to be understandable by end users. Nor is it designed to be machine-parsable; the format of the file is subject to change without notice.

/LOG="filename"

Same as /LOG, except it allows you to specify a fixed path/filename to use for the log file. If a file with the specified name already exists it will be overwritten. If the file cannot be created, Setup will abort with an error message.

/NOCANCEL

Prevents the user from cancelling during the installation process, by disabling the Cancel button and ignoring clicks on the close button. Useful along with '/SILENT' or '/VERYSILENT'.

/NORESTART

Prevents Setup from restarting the system following a successful installation, or after a Preparing to Install failure that requests a restart. Typically used along with /SILENT or /VERYSILENT.

/RESTARTEXITCODE=exit code

Specifies a custom exit code that Setup is to return when the system needs to be restarted following a successful installation. (By default, 0 is returned in this case.) Typically used along with /NORESTART. See also: Setup Exit Codes

/CLOSEAPPLICATIONS

Instructs Setup to close applications using files that need to be updated by Setup if possible.

/NOCLOSEAPPLICATIONS

Prevents Setup from closing applications using files that need to be updated by Setup. If /CLOSEAPPLICATIONS was also used, this command line parameter is ignored.

/FORCECLOSEAPPLICATIONS

Instructs Setup to force close when closing applications.

/NOFORCECLOSEAPPLICATIONS

Prevents Setup from force closing when closing applications. If /FORCECLOSEAPPLICATIONS was also used, this command line parameter is ignored.

/RESTARTAPPLICATIONS

Instructs Setup to restart applications if possible. Only has an effect when combined with '/CLOSEAPPLICATIONS'.

/NORESTARTAPPLICATIONS

Prevents Setup from restarting applications. If /RESTARTAPPLICATIONS was also used, this command line parameter is ignored.

/LOADINF="filename"

Instructs Setup to load the settings from the specified file after having checked the command line. This file can be prepared using the '/SAVEINF=' command as explained below.

Don't forget to use quotes if the filename contains spaces.

/SAVEINF="filename"

Instructs Setup to save installation settings to the specified file.

Don't forget to use quotes if the filename contains spaces.

/LANG=language

Specifies the language to use. language specifies the internal name of the language as specified in a [Languages] section entry.

When a valid /LANG parameter is used, the Select Language dialog will be suppressed.

/DIR="x:\dirname"

Overrides the default directory name displayed on the Select Destination Location wizard page. A fully qualified pathname must be specified. May include an "expand:" prefix which instructs Setup to expand any constants in the name. For example: '/DIR=expand:{autopf}\My Program'.

/GROUP="folder name"

Overrides the default folder name displayed on the Select Start Menu Folder wizard page. May include an "expand:" prefix, see '/DIR='. If the [Setup] section directive DisableProgramGroupPage was set to yes, this command line parameter is ignored.

/NOICONS

Instructs Setup to initially check the Don't create a Start Menu folder check box on the Select Start Menu Folder wizard page.

/TYPE=type name

Overrides the default setup type.

If the specified type exists and isn't a custom type, then any /COMPONENTS parameter will be ignored.

/COMPONENTS="comma separated list of component names"

Overrides the default component settings. Using this command line parameter causes Setup to automatically select a custom type. If no custom type is defined, this parameter is ignored.

Only the specified components will be selected; the rest will be deselected.

If a component name is prefixed with a "*" character, any child components will be selected as well (except for those that include the dontinheritcheck flag). If a component name is prefixed with a "!" character, the component will be deselected.

This parameter does not change the state of components that include the fixed flag.

Example:
Deselect all components, then select the "help" and "plugins" components:
/COMPONENTS="help,plugins"
Example:
Deselect all components, then select a parent component and all of its children with the exception of one:
/COMPONENTS="*parent,!parent\child"
/TASKS="comma separated list of task names"

Specifies a list of tasks that should be initially selected.

Only the specified tasks will be selected; the rest will be deselected. Use the /MERGETASKS parameter instead if you want to keep the default set of tasks and only select/deselect some of them.

If a task name is prefixed with a "*" character, any child tasks will be selected as well (except for those that include the dontinheritcheck flag). If a task name is prefixed with a "!" character, the task will be deselected.

Example:
Deselect all tasks, then select the "desktopicon" and "fileassoc" tasks:
/TASKS="desktopicon,fileassoc"
Example:
Deselect all tasks, then select a parent task and all of its children with the exception of one:
/TASKS="*parent,!parent\child"
/MERGETASKS="comma separated list of task names"

Like the /TASKS parameter, except the specified tasks will be merged with the set of tasks that would have otherwise been selected by default.

If UsePreviousTasks is set to yes, the specified tasks will be selected/deselected after any previous tasks are restored.

Example:
Keep the default set of selected tasks, but additionally select the "desktopicon" and "fileassoc" tasks:
/MERGETASKS="desktopicon,fileassoc"
Example:
Keep the default set of selected tasks, but deselect the "desktopicon" task:
/MERGETASKS="!desktopicon"
/PASSWORD=password

Specifies the password to use. If the [Setup] section directive Password was not set, this command line parameter is ignored.

When an invalid password is specified, this command line parameter is also ignored.
