The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is implemented to help the US IRS identifying US persons who may be evading taxes through the use of overseas banks and investment vehicles. US Government concluded Intergovernmental Agreements (IGA) with many partner countries to effectively implement FATCA into local legislation. FATCA and IGAs took effect on July 1st, 2014.
These FATCA provisions will also dramatically alter the way non-US taxpayers will be conducting banking and investment activities through various entities and structures. Many portfolio investment entities that are professionally managed have to be classified as Foreign Financial Institutions (FFI). Many clients are concerned of the impact of the registration of these FFI entities with the IRS and of disclosing their personal information and need support in complying with the complex FATCA and IGA requirements.
Your non-US clients also have to anticipate the increasing trend of automatic exchange of information between tax authorities. They have to ensure that their investment structure is also fully tax compliant in the country where the client is tax resident. We assist clients in manoeuvring the completion of FATCA forms and ongoing FATCA compliance, as well as compliance within the local countries's regulations.
Investment funds can have many different applications. Professional investment managers use them to pool investors’ money into diversified portfolios. Funds can also be used to offer market neutral investment opportunities to investors based on a specific investment strategy.
