ABOUT THE TOPIC
FATCA and the IGA's will impact Latin American Investors doing business in and with the US. They will face exchange of information and costs. Is this an opportunity or threat for Switzerland? And how should Latin American Investors anticipate?
FATCA is designed to oblige all foreign financial institutions worldwide to provide the US with information regarding accounts held by US persons.
• What are the implications for banks operating in Latin America and the Caribbean?
• What is being done by private banks and trust companies to prepare for the administrative tasks and costs related to FATCA and IGA's?
• How is or could it affect US-Latin American Relations?
Moreover, FATCA and the reciprocal IGA’s will result in automatic exchange of information to tax authorities in Latin America countries. Other automatic exchange trends are ongoing. It’s time to anticipate for Latin America individuals by compliant structuring of their foreign investments.
The Roundtable will clarify the FATCA regulation and what this means for financial institutions, companies and individuals in Latin America. It will discuss the do’s and don’ts with regard to compliant structuring for a number of Latin-American countries.
