Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) - Deloitte Webinar

07 Mar 2012


Overview   

US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released its much-anticipated final draft regulations for FATCA ( click here to view). Whilst some guidance on the FATCA provisions has been provided in previous IRS Notices, the regulations provide significantly more detail on the application of FATCA for financial institutions and include certain important relief provisions, such as changes to the de minimis thresholds for account identification, broader definitions of deemed compliant financial institutions, and potential amendments to the transfer of information to the IRS using existing information exchange treaties.

Despite these allowances, it will be imperative for institutions to react quickly, drawing on the expertise of their core team of operations, finance, risk, compliance and tax, to ensure that they are able to submit their FATCA applications by 30 June 2013. There is a brief final period of consultation (until 30 April 2012) so financial institutions wishing to comment upon the regulations and recommend alternatives before FATCA comes into force will have an opportunity to have their voice heard.

With all of this in mind, Deloitte is offering a Webinar to help understand the impact of the final regulations.
