Understanding FATCA

Understanding FATCA
Find out more about the US’s Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and some of its main challenges for international organizations.

Questions included:

  • In addition to more transparency for US passport holders and—possibly—better tax collection for the IRS, what are the benefits of FATCA to the USA?
  • What kind of consequences can be expected for identified US nationals that have decided not to disclose or report their foreign assets and income to the IRS?
  • In the case of US nationals who haven't lived in the US for over 10 years, for how long are they under obligation to report their income to US authorities under FATCA regulations?
  • In cases in which US nationals own shares in private companies, are corporate service providers under obligation to report such holdings under FATCA regulations?
  • And more!
