Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act is the new generation US Act which was passed with the objective of combating the tax evasion by USA citizens residing outside the USA. It requires non-US entities to identify US taxpayers who hold directly or indirectly certain foreign financial accounts and to report related information to the IRS (Internal Revenue Services) or to their local tax authorities as per the various Intergovernmental Agreements (IGA)
Certified FATCA Professional
The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is an important development in U.S. efforts to improve tax compliance involving foreign financial assets and offshore accounts. FATCA requires foreign financial institutions (FFIs) to report directly to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) information on financial accounts held by U.S. taxpayers, or held by foreign entities in which U.S. taxpayers hold a substantial ownership interest (generally 10% or more). In order to identify customers who are U.S. taxpayers, FFIs will be required to implement due diligence, identification, controls and reporting systems. Certified FATCA Professional is the person who is trained on the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act as well as the Due Diligence.
