Managing the Risks in Serving US Clients: What Every Non-US Financial Institution Needs to Know in Today's Environment

In today's global marketplace, financial institutions often provide private banking services across borders. The provision of these services by non-US financial institutions to US clients has recently come under increased scrutiny by a variety of US government authorities, including the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, many non-US financial institutions are carefully reviewing the means and methods by which they serve US clients. In this webinar, lawyers from Mayer Brown's Tax Transactions and Financial Services Regulatory & Enforcement practices will:

  • Provide an overview of the relevant US federal tax, banking and securities laws
  • Review recent actions by US government authorities regarding private banking services provided by non-US institutions to US clients
  • Offer practical tips regarding compliance policies, procedures, controls and "best practices"
  • Describe the IRS's Voluntary Disclosure Program and the potential consequences of disclosures made under this program by US clients
  • Assess the impact of US legislative and policy initiatives, including prospe ctive changes to the IRS Qualified Intermediary Program
