Register and join our event “Getting ready for FATCA group requests” on 5th of September in Zurich and 12th of September in Geneva.
We will provide useful background information, practical advice on the applicable requirements as well as tips on how to best prepare in anticipation of the FATCA group request.
Why should you attend this event?
The ratification of the 2009 Protocol to the US-Swiss Double Tax Treaty will allow the IRS to submit group requests for non-consenting US accounts and non-consenting NPFFIs reported by Swiss financial institutions under FATCA. As part of this process, Swiss financial institutions will have only 10 days to respond to requests from the Swiss Federal Tax Administration (SFTA).
If you are the FATCA responsible officer, or are responsible for ensuring the group request process runs smoothly within your organization, this is an event you cannot miss.
