FATCA enacted in 2010 by the US Congress
FATCA, enacted in 2010 by the US Congress, targets non-compliance by US taxpayers using foreign accounts and requires foreign financial institutions to report information about financial accounts held by US taxpayers, or by foreign entities in which US taxpayers hold a substantial ownership interest. We now have a dedicated legal team specialized in positioning clients to understand, respond and comply with the complex US Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) requirements set out by the US government this year catering specifically to:
