FATCA responsible officer certification services

Is your organization ready to make required responsible officer certifications?

The deadline for responsible officers (ROs) of participating Foreign Financial Institutions (FFIs) and Reporting Model 2 FFIs to certify their compliance with the U.S. Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is July 1, 2021. RO certifications are generally due July 1 following the third full calendar year after the date the entity registered and received a global intermediary identification number (GIIN) and periodically thereafter, every three years. With the Internal Revenue Service’s compliance campaigns focused on FATCA reporting it is more important than ever to manage risk associated with non-compliance.
