Final rules to implement the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) have been released and Bloomberg BNA customers can be among the first to gain a detailed understanding of them.

FATCA experts Carol Tello, Alan Granwell, and their teams at Sutherland and DLA Piper will comb the 500 plus pages of technical detail supporting these final regulations and provide their critical findings in a new live webinar.

Will the IRS provide businesses with more unified definitions in the regulations? Will there be more coordination of the tax code Chapter 61 domestic reporting rules with the Chapter 3 rules regarding payments to foreign persons? Have insurance companies steered the IRS toward adopting definitions of insurance and annuity contracts used in the model IGAs incorporated in the final regulations? Will there be further relaxation and clarification of the due diligence rules, and further broadening of “deemed compliant” entities?

High net-worth individuals and their advisors in private equity, hedge funds, insurance companies, and other financial institutions will be among the first to digest the impact of the final FATCA regulations. Join us and bring your questions to Granwell and Tello for answers.
