In March 2010 FACTA, Subtitle A of Title V of Public Law went into effect. It will require Americans to more comprehensively report offshore income from overseas accounts. Aimed at individuals, the law will also have sweeping changes for corporations as well as they impact the path to investment in US firms by foreign companies. The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of FACTA experts to help companies, attorneys, CPA’s, consultants and industry professionals make sense of the new law and its impact on the industry.
In this live webcast, our experts will roll up their sleeves and offer practical guidance to the law’s 5 main components:
- Disclosure of Beneficial Owners
- Underreporting of Foreign assets
- Other disclosures
- Substitute payments
- Dividend payments
This live webcast will cover the most critical aspects of this legislation as well as provide up-to-the-minute regulatory updates that may impact its implementation.
