The U.S. Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act requires financial institutions (Such as Banks, Brokerage firms, Financial Investment entities, and specified insurance companies) in other countries to report to the IRS information about financial accounts held by U.S. taxpayers.


Non-U.S. financial institutions (known as Foreign Financial Institutions - FFIs) are required to report U.S. persons' account information directly to the IRS or their competent local authority if the country has an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with the IRS.

Vast amounts of money are kept offshore and go untaxed. Offshore tax evasion is a serious global issue. Many countries have sought to protect the integrity of their tax systems and apply regulations similar to the FATCA regulations imposed by the USA for the benefit of their own state to collect information about their taxpayers across the globe. The CRS draws extensively on the intergovernmental approach to implementing FATCA.

This webinar will assist you in understanding FATCA & CRS and how exactly you can implement their requirements, including Registration, Documentation, Due diligence, Implementation and reporting.
