FATCA: discussion of proposed regulations and their impact on your company
Jesse Eggert, Associate International Tax Counsel, Office of Tax Policy, US Department of the Treasury, joins Ernst & Young LLP professionals to discuss the new FATCA regulations
The Treasury and IRS have issued the long-awaited proposed regulations under the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) provisions enacted in 2010. These regulations are important to US and foreign financial institutions as they provide comprehensive guidance addressing many of the implementation questions institutions around the world are facing. Among the areas addressed are key definitions (FFI and USFI, financial account, exempted categories and grandfathered obligations), transitional rules, and potential intergovernmental agreements to facilitate FATCA implementation. These regulations provide much-needed, preliminary guidance to use in implementing FATCA.
