The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) imposes new information reporting and withholding tax obligations on a wide range of non-US financial intermediaries (including non-US banks, non-US investment funds and collective investment vehicles, non-US CLOs and CDOs, and non-US insurance companies) that directly or indirectly have US investments.
The Internal Revenue Service and the US Department of Treasury recently issued revised timelines for due diligence and other requirements under FATCA. In addition, further details regarding implementation of FATCA though an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) are now available. Please join us as Mayer Brown partners Jonathan Sambur and Tom Delaney discuss the impact of these new FATCA timelines and the consequences of implementing FATCA using one or more IGAs.
