New Dates Announced


This event is now scheduled for June 26-27, 2013.

Reserve your place now!


The ‘Final Regulations’ of The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) are now out and the initial list of FFIs will be published imminently. This should send a clear and direct signal to Heads of Tax and Compliance in FFIs and qualifying NFFEs across Europe and beyond that preparations should be well underway to meet the onerous new reporting and review requirements. Failure to meet requirements or deadlines may not only result in a 30% withholding tax obligation but in some cases being thrown out of the regime and loss of access to US capital markets.

The FATCA Portal goes live this July for first sign up for FFI Agreements. Attend C5’s forum on FATCA Compliance in Europe this summer to give your organisation the most up to date information and the very latest on IGA s issued in Europe and other key jurisdictions globally. This timely conference offers you a last chance, before the deadlines, to gain practical solutions to the most complex FATCA implementation challenges. Meet and hear from a leading faculty of experienced in-house tax and compliance executives already embracing and implementing the FATCA changes to give you critical updates and insights that will help your organisation plan and manage a seamless transition to FATCA compliance by the deadlines.


Key issues to be discussed include:
  • How the European intergovernmental agreements with the IRS will ease reporting requirements under FATCA and where they will not
  • Strategically incorporating new procedures into your existing internal compliance programmes: Building the best FATCA compliance team
  • Best practices for gathering data on existing clients whilst avoiding data protection and privacy breaches
  • The most important changes you need to make to your existing KYC/AML due diligence and screening procedures
  • Reinforcing existing account review systems to account for the additional “Periodic review” requirements under FATCA
  • Definitions of an FI and what is a ‘managing entity’ or ‘depository institution’
  • How the existing Qualifying Intermediary (QI) scheme can assist you in your preparations and where it falls short
