The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is U.S. legislation intended to prevent offshore tax abuses by U.S. persons. The FATCA rules are wide-ranging and require global financial institutions, investment entities, as well as national banks and other financial organizations to report to the IRS details on their U.S. clients .  Even non-financial entities face increased compliance burdens as a result of FATCA.  The FATCA requirements introduce a series of business and systems requirements that are simple in concept, but maybe difficult and costly to put in place. 

This program will review the FATCA rules and discuss how they came to be and how they affect individual investors and companies.  In addition, representatives from financial institutions and financial service companies will engage in an interactive discussion regarding the challenges in implementing procedures and systems necessary to become FATCA compliant.

After this seminar, attendees will know the basics of the FATCA regulations and the practical challenges companies are dealing with to meet the FATCA reporting requirements.


Panel I: History and Overview of FATCA Rules 
Panel II:
Industry Panel Q&A regarding FATCA Implementation
