Description :

    • The cornerstone of the American system of tax administration: the citizenry can be trusted to voluntarily report.
    • FATCA and FBAR's: the citizenry cannot be trusted to self-report; , therefore full disclosure of foreign financial assets is required regardless of the existence of a taxable event;
    • The goal of FATCA , enacted five years ago, is to establish a virtual international, financial and banking data base of both US persons, as well as FATCA partners, which can be accessed at will by the US and its FATCA partners.
    • The United States taxes its people on the basis of its citizenship as opposed to residence based taxation which is the system in place in the rest of the civilized world. From this arises all the issues with withholding, foreign tax credits, tax treaties, international information gathering
    • FATCA requires every bank in the world whose business involves, even indirectly, the movement of U.S. source income, to register electronically with either the IRS itself or its own government which has already agreed to turn over to the IRS, report the names of all their depositors which show some signs of being American.
    • A foreign financial institution which fails to register with the IRS triggers a 30% mandatory withholding tax on all its US sourced income.
