Regulations: Are You Ready For Chapter 4?

Final FATCA regulations were issued in January 2013. The final FATCA regulations implement Chapter 4’s goal of accessing and collecting information about U.S. account holders of foreign institutions or associated foreign vendors and suppliers. Nondisclosure results in a 30% withholding on payments to “high risk” foreign parties. U.S. businesses (and their advisors) must address the administrative requirements of the FATCA regulations before remitting funds to foreign vendors or suppliers as well as foreign financial institutions. Failing to do so, they risk substantial penalties and interest under FATCA. It is imperative that an appropriate FATCA compliance strategy be put in place by U.S. businesses as well as foreign financial institutions.

Join our presentation and gain an understanding of the Chapter 4 requirements, key implementation dates and new tax reporting forms. We look forward to a lively discussion about FATCA withholding.

Please feel free to invite other members of your firm.
