The Race to Register with the IRS' Online FATCA System Has Begun (PDF)
Select a format
FATCA requires that foreign financial institutions (FFIs) make regular certifications to the IRS through a responsible officer via the FATCA Portal. These FFIs must annually disclose taxpayer and account information for U.S. persons, unless an intergovernmental agreement allows for indirect reporting to the IRS via a foreign government. The following EIA explores the IRS online FATCA registration system for FFIs required to comply with FATCA.
Prof. William H. Byrnes, IV is the co-author of LexisNexis Guide to FATCA Compliance and Foreign Tax & Trade Briefs. The LexisNexis Guide to FATCA Compliance provides a framework for meaningful interactions among enterprise stakeholders, and between the compliance department and its advisors / vendors. Analysis of the complicated regulations, recognition of overlapping complex regime and intergovernmental agreement requirements (e.g. FATCA, Qualified Intermediary, source withholding, national and international information exchange, European Union tax information exchange, information confidentiality laws, money laundering prevention, risk management, and the application of an IGA) is balanced with substantive analysis and descriptive examples. The challenges of the compliance department are approached from several perspectives and contextual backgrounds. The nearly 400 page Guide comprises 25 Chapters grouped in three parts: compliance program (Chapters 1-4), analysis of FATCA regulations (Chapters 5 – 13) and analysis of FATCA's application for certain trading partners of the U.S., including intergovernmental agreements (Chapters 14 – 25).
