What to expect from us

The identification, documentation and reporting of the correct and relevant information in a timely manner under FATCA as well as the ongoing monitoring of relevant changes require efficient processes to ensure that nothing is overlooked.

Our team of experts provides tailored advisory and reporting services to ensure compliance with your due diligence and reporting obligations. With many years of both technical and practical expertise in the area of FATCA, our services cover all aspects. We can tell you what to need to do, how and when – or help you do it.

Our FATCA services

FATCA is an automatic information exchange regime that requires foreign (non-US) financial institutions, including custodians and depository institutions, investment companies and certain insurance companies, and certain other non-financial institutions to report on foreign assets held by US account holders and to comply with due diligence and other compliance requirements, either under the FATCA rules or the intergovernmental agreement (IGA) to the extent it is in effect in their jurisdiction.

Our FATCA services cover the following topics.

FATCA classification

We assist you in classifying companies to determine their obligations and provide assistance in completing our self-certification forms and other related services.

FATCA reporting

Our services also include the correct and timely preparation and, where possible, submission of reports under FATCA. These are performed uniformly, based on the jurisdiction-relevant and up-to-date reporting xml scheme using secure reporting software hosted in Switzerland and with the provision of client notifications.

FATCA impact assessment

As part of our FATCA services, we perform assessments of the FATCA impact and reportability of existing or planned structures, including recommendations where remedial action is required.

FATCA compliance

We advise clients on establishing an effective FATCA compliance programme that includes policies, procedures and processes for due diligence and ongoing monitoring of relevant changes, ensuring compliance with the relevant rules and maintaining an audit trail.

What sets us apart

Experience from day one

We have sound technical expertise and extensive practical experience in dealing with FATCA compliance and reporting matters in a wide range of jurisdictions from the very start of the regime.

Personalisation

We deliver solutions that are tailored to meet the individual needs of our customers, based on a close and continuous dialogue. Whether you want to outsource all or part of your processes to us or want our advice in a single matter, our aim is to always provide you with exactly what you need – no more and no less.

Holistic mindset

We have a holistic mindset and create added value for our clients by not losing sight of the big picture. This enables us to proactively show you structures with which you can align yourself in a long-term and stable way.
