Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) Services
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.
We assist you in classifying companies to determine their obligations and provide assistance in completing our self-certification forms and other related services.
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.
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.
