A step by step guide to FATCA compliance

FATCA compliance has been a big concern for many financial firms - from a lack of clear IRS guidance to the exceeding complexity of navigating different intergovernmental agreements.

The U.S. Treasury has declared that Foreign Financial Institutions (FFIs) and Non-Financial Foreign Entities (NFFEs) should regard calendar years 2014 and 2015 as a transition period for purposes of IRS enforcement and administer due diligence, reporting, withholding provisions, filing W-8 and W-9 forms and accurately capture data for their customers. This involves mammoth IT changes for most banks and financial institutions.
