As the world becomes "smaller," the dynamics of global financial transactions are intensifying. This is why the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is one of the most important awareness issues in today's tax policy and compliance arena. As new developments emerge almost daily in this ever-changing environment, the importance of working knowledge is increasingly pronounced. The LexisNexis® Guide to FATCA Compliance, scheduled for release in May 2013, will be an invaluable resource of insight into FATCA principles, the reasons behind them, and the best practice steps financial institutions must follow in order to comply. Comprehensive coverage in this work, authored by Professor William Byrnes and Dr. Robert Munro, is complemented by content provided by highly qualified international contributors to render meaningful information about all aspects of FATCA.
The impact of FATCA is far-reaching: Affected financial institutions of many descriptions must navigate complex and challenging regulations to maintain compliance. In broad terms, foreign banks, brokerages, pension funds, insurance companies and a host of other foreign businesses that disburse payments to U.S. citizens and residents are all subject to FATCA compliance. As agreements between nations are consummated and other FATCA developments unfold, the importance of awareness will only grow.
