AP Compliance Reporting: FATCA
Brought to you by CFO Learning
The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) places new onerous documentation and reporting requirements on U.S. companies that make payments to foreign entities or persons. There are stringent penalties for non-compliance. FATCA is not just a "tweak" to the U.S. withholding tax rules but effectively creates a new regulatory regime requiring a massive change project for your company and it must be completed by 2013.
What's the risk? Any U.S. company making payments to non-U.S. entities or persons now faces the twin challenges of staying on track to be FATCA compliant by 2013 and remaining compliant with current nonresident alien (NRA) withholding tax rules. Even more daunting, you must also ensure that your domestic withholding and reporting are up-to-date and robust.
Join tax experts Cyrus Daftary, Kelli Wooten, and Jill Dymtrow during this hour-long Webcast that focuses on explaining the new compliance risks and providing practical recommendations on how to evaluate and handle those risks.
After this Webcast you will:
- Understand the FATCA implications for your company;
- Know what needs to be done to meet the reporting and withholding requirements under U.S. Tax Code Section 1441 for foreign vendors;
- Identify and deal with concerns and potential issues raised by the rule change;
- Deal with FATCA's impact on the 1441 Rules (related to NRA);
- Handle the implementation considerations brought on by the rule change; and
- Evaluate the concept of Electronic Forms W-8.
