Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA)

The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is United States (US) legislation aimed at improving compliance with US tax laws. FATCA imposes certain due diligence and reporting obligations on Australian financial institutions (AFIs), and those of other non-US countries, to report US citizen or US tax-resident Account Holders to the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Australia and the US signed an intergovernmental agreement to implement FATCA (the FATCA Agreement). Under the FATCA Agreement, non-exempt AFIs need to register with the IRS and report to the ATO each year about certain Financial Accounts held with them by either: US citizens, US tax residents, specified US entities established in the US or controlled by US persons.

Please visit the FATCA page for more information.
