Enacted in March of 2010 as part of the HIRE Act (2010), FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) was introduced to deter tax evasion by having non-US entities perform due diligence procedures in order to identify US-taxpayers that they deal with in their normal course of business. Since then, organizations globally have been working to understand what their obligations are to achieve FATCA compliance.

As a non-US entity, requirements differ between a Foreign Financial Institution (an “FFI”) versus a non-financial foreign entity (an “NFFE”). Also, the requirements that will apply to an FFI will differ between an FFI that is resident in a country with an intergovernmental agreement (“IGA”) with the US and an FFI that is not. Requirements are further differentiated depending on the type of IGA (Model 1 or 2) negotiated between the FFI’s country of residence and the US. This Course attempts to navigate the minefield that is FATCA and arm your organization with the know-how to be FATCA ready.
