Senior Fellow Rudy Escalante, CEO, ICSA

The United States enacted The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) to create a new tax compliance and reporting regime in order to identify and prosecute tax evasion through the use of offshore jurisdictions. The FATCA tax regime requires all global financial institutions, including investment entities, to due diligence and furnishing reporting of US investors, clients or customers to the IRS.

In order to successfully navigate the new FATCA regime, and enhanced global regulatory reporting requirements, firms must re-engineer their processes and infrastructure to deliver uniformly accurate regulatory and investor reporting.

Otherwise investor due diligence and regulatory examinations will ferret out numerous errors, inconsistencies and deficiencies – which translate to redemptions as well as regulatory violations and enforcement actions.

During the Course, we shall discuss and analyze the challenges of developing and implementing the processes and infrastructure to become FATCA compliant – including:

  • Identifying the relevant data set for comprehensive reporting;
  • Integrating with third party systems;
  • Data processing errors and inconsistencies;
  • The IRS registration procedure;
  • Identification of U.S. accounts;
  • Conducting due diligence; and
  • Compliance with the new deadlines.
