The aim of this programme is to analyse the two main regulations currently in place regarding the automatic exchange of financial account information for tax purposes, namely the United States’ Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act and the OECD’s Common Reporting Standard, as well as the impact of their provisions on financial institutions.
Both FATCA and CRS are presently global transparency initiatives that require Foreign Financial Institutions to automatically report financial account information of specific account holders that are subject to reporting, as per the content of the regulations. Financial Institutions are instructed to implement exhaustive due diligence measures intending to hinder any attempt by account holders to bypass the reporting. The FATCA and CRS obligations are therefore an expansion of the pre-existing know-your-customer (KYC) requirements that Financial Institutions have to fulfil, mainly due to the added need for constant monitoring and reviewing of account holders’ information and accounts, whereas KYC processes often simply follow a model of periodic reviews based on clients’ risk-rating.
Who should attend
The programme is also ideal for all those who aim to obtain their CPD training, as required by CySEC, CyBAR, and the ICPAC.
