Online CPE Tax Compliance

Join us for this Knowledge Group Online CPE Tax Compliance Webinar. For the past years, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) has been keeping an eye on U.S. taxpayers with foreign accounts and has been requiring foreign financial institutions and certain other non-financial foreign entities to report assets held under such accounts. The main purpose of FATCA is to combat tax evasion by U.S. persons holding accounts and other financial assets offshore. However, due to the increasing number of taxpayers owning foreign assets and accounts, the rise of OECD's Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) Regime and leadership changes in the government, developments and significant alterations are expected to come for the next days, months and years.

In this Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide and present to the audience all the important issues, recent trends and developments in the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). Speakers will also provide a comprehensive guide on the fundamental frameworks of this significant topic.

  • The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act: Legal Framework
