New York, NY, September 14, 2010 --( The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: The New FATCA Regulatory Guidance: Understanding Its Scope and How It Applies. This two-hour event is scheduled on October 1, 2010 at 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET.

Event Synopsis

The new FATCA provisions (sections 1471-1474) in a very broad grant of authority leave much of its interpretation to the IRS and Treasury. This panel will discuss some of the most important aspects of that broad regulatory authority and provide guidance, how it will impact affected entities, and what remains to be done.

The FATCA provisions have provoked comments from many foreign associations representing various types of entities (e.g., banks and insurance companies) that have a stake in how the FATCA provisions are applied. This panel will discuss the concerns of the members of those associations and how they believe the regulations should provide relief.

A team of experts and thought leaders assembled by the Knowledge Group will help you stay in-the-know with respect to the most critical issues surrounding this topic. The audience will have an opportunity to ask the speakers questions directly during the live Q&A session.
