Subject: RE: [tax] CIQ: has any tax admin used it?

The ATO has elected to use an Australian Standard for name and address
information (AS4590) - primarily for the reasons Andy has mentioned -
CIQ is significantly more complex than we required at the time. However,
we have also identified a requirement to investigate CIQ from the
perspective of being able to exchange data internationally

We (UK IR) are conducting a thorough review of identification data
(including name and address) across all our services currently. CIQ will
be examined during that review, along with UK-specific standards such as
BS7666 for UK addresses.

I don't want to pre-empt the review, but I would say that the highly
structured form of names and addresses in CIQ may be overkill for many
uses - without some sort of gazetteer support at the point of input and
sophisticated address matching functionality internally it is probably
asking a bit much of most users to enter highly structured address data
and expect them to get it anything like correct or consistent. However,
there are some uses which benefit from such structure - so there is a
trade-off between usefulness and practicality.
