In this video, Peter Ku, director of solution marketing, Global Financial Services, Informatica, discusses the data challenges associated with FATCA compliance.
The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) was signed into U.S law in March 2010 and is coming into effect on January 1, 2014. The new law will require Foreign Financial Institutions to report the names of U.S. persons and owners of companies who have bank accounts in these banks for tax reporting and withholding purposes.
Peter answers the following questions:
1) What is FATCA and what are the requirements financial services companies must comply with?
2) What must financial institutions do to successfully meet these requirements?
3) What do financial institutions need to address the data-related challenges and comply with FATCA?
